Two people are dead and a 5-year-old boy was seriously injured after a rollover crash in Montclair Saturday night, Montclair police said.

Authorities received reports of an overturned vehicle with people trapped inside at the intersection of Howard Street and Ramona Avenue at 10:30 p.m. According to reports, a white SUV was flipped over and a white car was damaged, with the front of the car crushed.

Two people were killed in the accident. The 67-year-old man and 65-year-old woman who died were in the same car.

A man and a 5-year-old were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

George Estrada said he was watching television when he heard the collision. He ran outside to help and called 911.

"You didn't hear no brakes at all; nothing at all," Estrada said. "You just heard the big bang."

Police said they're investigating if the driver of the SUV, identified as a 32-year-old from Garden Grove, may have been drunk or high.
