GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — Five people from Wyoming, including an infant girl, are dead after the SUV they were in was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer in northern Colorado.

All five people who were killed were from Gillette, Wyoming and ranged in age from 3 months old to 51 years old.

Two other vehicles were involved in the crash, and one person was hospitalized with minor injuries. The truck driver, a 26-year-old man from Denver, was not hurt.

Investigators do not believe drugs, alcohol or speed played a role in the crash, and no charges have been filed.

The victims' names have not been released.
