SEBRING, Fla. (AP) -- Four people in a rural part of Florida died in a two-vehicle crash, according to authorities.

Troopers said a van carrying three people was traveling through Highlands County, Florida on Saturday when the driver lost control, crossed the center line and crashed into a sports utility vehicle with two people.

The van caught fire after the crash before coming to a stop.

Both passengers in the SUV and two passengers in the van were killed, authorities said.

The surviving occupant of the van was taken to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
