LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — Police officials in central Florida say four people have died in a head-on crash.

The four people in the car were killed and authorities say the driver of the truck was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
Authorities are asking motorists to avoid the area for several hours as police investigate the crash and clean up the road.
