LANTANA, Fla. (AP) - One person is dead and six others were injured in a rollover crash in Florida.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1Qpg1bY ) reports the accident happened Wednesday afternoon in the northbound lanes of I-95 in Lantana, south of West Palm Beach.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue says a Mercedes SUV driven by 18-year-old Calvin Keith Jordan veered into an emergency lane. Jordan lost control, causing the vehicle to overturn. Six passengers in the SUV were ejected. Police say none was wearing a seatbelt.

A Honda CR-V hit the overturned Mercedes SUV, which then became engulfed in flames. One of the ejected passengers was struck by a Cadillac.

The six passengers of the Mercedes SUV were taken to hospitals. 20-year-old Peter Olivier died at the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
