TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Four sisters have died and several others have been injured in a single-vehicle wreck on Interstate 95 in Florida.

Media outlets report the crash happened Monday in Titusville, about 40 miles east of Orlando.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 15-year-old Amunya Cruz, 14-year-old Jasmine Cruz and 13-year-old Niashia Cruz were killed when a tire blew out in the SUV that their mother was driving, causing the vehicle to flip several times before crashing into a barrier wall.

Eight people were taken to a hospital, including a fourth sister, 10-year-old Nadia Cruz, who died Tuesday.

The girls’ lone surviving sibling, 9-year-old Shakara Cruz, remained hospitalized Tuesday, while their mother, 34-year-old Latorya Brown, was released from the hospital.

Officials say the siblings weren’t wearing seatbelts.
