Nobody has yet been found in a burnt-out US mountain cabin where Dorner was believed to have barricaded himself after a six-day manhunt, a police spokesman said. Media reports that a body had been found in the cabin near Big Bear, east of Los Angeles, and identified as Dorner's were false, said Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) spokesman Andrew Smith.

CONCORD (CBS SF) — A woman and baby were killed in a head-on crash in Concord on Friday night, police said.

An officer driving east on Willow Pass Road saw the crash at the Kinne Bridge overcrossing adjacent to the former Concord Naval Weapons Station around 11 p.m., according to police.

The officer called for additional units and emergency crews rendered aid to a baby girl, police said.

She was transported to a hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to police.

A woman who may have driven one of the vehicles involved in the crash was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Based on a preliminary investigation, a SUV and large sedan were driving in opposite directions and crashed head-on, police said.

Both vehicles sustained major damage in the collision, according to police.

Five people from both vehicles were transported to hospitals for major injuries that were not considered to be life-threatening, police said.

The identities of the woman and baby have not been released pending notification of their next of kin, according to police.

Willow Pass Road was closed at the Kinne Bridge overcrossing while police investigated the crash. The roadway reopened around 8 a.m.

Police are looking into whether alcohol was a factor in the collision.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Concord police Officer Ken Carlson at (925) 603-5931.
