DELAND, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say three children and an adult were killed in a crash in central Florida.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that three vehicles were involved in the crash west of DeLand.

Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes says one of the vehicles rolled over and caught fire.

Eastbound and westbound lanes of State Road 44 were closed as troopers investigated the accident.

No names were immediately released, so it was unknown if the deceased were members of the same family.
