TULALIP, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a pickup truck drove off a roadway, over a concrete embankment and into a fisheries pond in western Washington state, killing the driver and all three passengers.

A spokeswoman for the Snohomish (snoh-HOH’-mish) County sheriff’s office says a call came in around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday that a truck had driven off the road in the town of Tulalip (too-LAY’-lihp).

Shari Ireton says the truck was submerged in the pond with all four adults inside. She says the two men and two women died at the scene.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the crash. Ireton says they won’t know if drugs or alcohol were involved until all the evidence is gathered and toxicology tests are complete.

Ireton says the county medical examiner will identify the victims and determine how they died.

This story has been corrected to show the spokeswoman’s first name is Shari, not Sheri.
