DALLAS (AP) - Three people are dead after the pickup truck in which they were riding clipped a curb and launched into a utility pole near Mountain Creek Lake in Dallas.

The crash happened about 3 a.m. Saturday on Mountain Creek Parkway. Police Officer Diana Flores says the truck clipped the curb and veered into a large fiberglass cylinder to be installed near the lake. That launched the truck into the air and into the wooden pole before it came to rest on its top. All three occupants were killed outright.

No identities have been released. It’s unclear what factors played into the crash.
