Four people are dead following a two-vehicle crash in North Central Florida.

The Florida Highway Patrol reports the crash happened in Cross City early Sunday morning.

The Gainesville Sun reports 35-year-old Eddie Pinner Lazo failed to stop at an intersection and hit a truck being driven by 51-year-old Rayford Lee Enfinger. Enfinger and his passengers, 35-year-old Julius Jeramia Micale and 13-year-old Levi Micale, died at the scene.

Troopers say 15-year-old Katie Rae Enfinger was pronounced dead while being taken to a waiting helicopter. Lazo was ejected from his vehicle and taken to a Gainesville hospital in critical condition.

The highway patrol is investigating the crash.
