ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Three children, a teenager and an adult were killed in a two-car crash in central Florida, authorities said.
The crash occurred before 8 p.m. when a car turning left was hit on the side by another vehicle, according to Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson Lt. Kim Montes.
There were six people in the impacted car and several occupants were ejected, Montes said.
It’s unclear whether the occupants wore seat belts or whether the impact, which ripped the car in half, caused the victims to be ejected.
Responders believe everyone in the vehicle was related. The ages of the victims have not been confirmed but one of the children was young enough to sit in an infant car seat, authorities said.
