Police say a car ran off a road and through several yards in central Pennsylvania before hitting a fire hydrant, a tree and the porch of a house, killing four people.

The crash happened around 2 a.m. Sunday in a mostly residential section of Chambersburg. Authorities say the car passed another at high speed before going out of control.

Franklin County coroner Jeffrey Conner says three men were ejected from the car and they and a woman were pronounced dead at the scene. Conner identifies them as 24-year-old Felix Perez-Cenas, 25-year-old Dorian Sanchez-Reyes, 18-year-old Tomas Ramirez and 22-year-old Cecelia Ramirez.

A girl was hospitalized in critical condition.

CBS Affiliate WHP reports a fifth person was flown to Chambersburg Hospital with extensive injuries and is in serious condition.

Conner says none of the victims was wearing a seat belt. He says authorities aren't sure who was driving.
