BALLWIN, Mo. (AP) — Three teens died and two others were seriously hurt in a fiery crash in a St. Louis suburb Sunday morning.

The St. Louis County Police Department said the crash happened shortly after 4 a.m. Sunday near Ballwin. All the crash victims appear to be in their mid to late teens, but their identities were not immediately released Sunday.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that investigators determined that the car the teens were riding in left the road and struck a tree before catching fire. Three teens died at the scene, and the other two were taken to hospitals with life-threatening injuries.
