Four people are dead following a crash in Plant City.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 31-year-old Rolando Silva lost control of his 2006 BMW early Friday morning and crashed head-on into a Cadillac driven by 26-year-old Joseph Vizcarrondo.

Troopers say that Silva, Vizcarrondo and two passengers in the Cadillac -- 19 Lauren Phillips and 25-year-old Jenna Kelly -- died at the scene. Silva initially crossed the grass median on State Road 60 near Plant City and hit a speed limit sign before crashing into the other vehicle.
Troopers say the crash wasn't alcohol related and that none of the victims wore seatbelts.
The Tampa Tribune reports Silva was arrested March 9 in Hillsborough County on charges including driving with a suspended license.
