BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say it may take some time to identify three people killed when a car crashed into a row of parked vehicles and burst into flames in eastern Pennsylvania.

Police in Northampton County said the car was reportedly traveling 80 to 100 mph when the crash occurred shortly after 1:15 a.m. Friday in Bethlehem Township.

Coroner Zachary Lysek said dental records and DNA analysis will be used, but the process could take days and perhaps weeks for the victims to be positively identified.

Authorities said a man believed to have been the driver was severely burned and was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest.

The crash remains under investigation and anyone who witnessed it or has information about the victims is asked to call police.
