It crashed on Interstate 95 in Volusia County, Florida.

Troopers said the 2000 Ford passenger van went off the road around 5:30 a.m. near Ormond Beach and overturned in the northbound lanes.

The van was carrying 10 people inside who are residents from another state.

The roof was ripped open during the impact and the van occupants were taken out after the crash.

At least three people were killed in the crash as of Sunday morning including a 4-year-old girl, a 19-year-old woman, and another person whose details haven’t been provided as of yet.

Multiple other passengers were admitted to three area hospitals. Four passengers were admitted to Halifax Medical Center, three were admitted to Florida AdventHealth and a 3-year-old was flown to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, according to FHP.
