Florida Interstate 95 Wreck Kills 3, Injures 8 After SUV Flips

Three girls were killed and eight people injured Monday in a single-vehicle wreck on Interstate 95 in Florida, The Associated Press reported.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the crash happened around 6:40 p.m. Monday in Titusville, about 40 miles east of Orlando.

Steven Montiero, a spokesman for the patrol, says a preliminary investigation shows a front tire may have malfunctioned, causing the SUV to flip.

He says three girls were pronounced dead at the scene and eight others were taken to a hospital. He says the people inside were family and friends. They weren't immediately identified.

Among those injured was a child who Montiero says was ejected over a perimeter fence. He says rescuers heard the child crying.

Montiero says it's clear at least some people weren't wearing seatbelts.
