    The driver of a limousine involved in a deadly fire on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge said he first thought his passengers wanted to smoke a cigarette when they told him there was smoke in the back of the car. Orville Brown told the Associated Press he misunderstood one of the passengers when she said she smelled smoke. By the time he pulled over, it was too late; fire killed 5 women in the car, including a newlywed. Four other women escaped with injuries.
