It doesn't take much more than that to know that the crash was a particularly bad one.
Just after six Wednesday night, the California Highway Patrol says a Lincoln Navigator blew a stop sign on Clarkson, crashing into a big rig headed north on Highway 43.
The big rig lost control and hit a Chrysler, which flipped over, and then hit another sedan.

At some point, the big rig's engine fell out onto the road, and another big rig traveling on the highway hit it.
One neighbor said she heard the crash, and when she came outside, she saw many drivers stopping to help, including some that used fire extinguishers to put out flames.
The driver of the Navigator died at the hospital-her name hasn't been released.
The driver of the Chrysler died at the scene.
Family members have identified him as 56-year-old Dean Clifford.
His passenger broke some bones but is expected to survive.
It hasn't been determined yet if drugs or alcohol played a role in this crash.
Authorities don't believe the rain was a factor.
