The car crossed over into the northbound lane and struck a vehicle that only had a driver. The impact killed all four adults in the car that had crossed the median, reports WEARTV.com, and also killed the 19-year-old driver of the vehicle that had been traveling in the northbound lane.
An 8-year-old child was also traveling in the vehicle that crossed over into the northbound lane. The child was left severely injured in the crash.
