On their way to a bridal shower.

A newly married bride and four of her friends were killed late Saturday night when a limo carrying them burst into flames while on a San Francisco bridge. Five others, including the male driver, escaped. Police said all of the women were in their 30s and 40s. According to police, smoke started coming out of the back of the limo, causing the driver to pull over. The limo was soon engulfed in flames, and the five women became trapped while four others managed to escape. Police said they are investigating the cause of the fire, which was not related to an accident. The names of the victims have not yet been released.
