Two vehicles were involved with two occupants each. Passenger of one car, Jose Gleen, died at the scene. The three other people involved - Sorlida Wiley, Lennard Allen and Ryan Robinson - have been transported to local hospitals with serious injuries.

No independent witnesses have been able to tell us who had the right-of-way.

That is under investigation, as are other details related to the crash.
