WYE MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Maryland State Police say five people are dead after a Virginia family's car collided with a tractor-trailer in Queen Anne's County.

Police say three adults, two children and an unborn child were killed in the crash about 1:15 a.m. Saturday on Route 50 in Wye Mills. The car and truck crashed at an intersection near Chesapeake College. The truck apparently rolled over the car before coming to a rest.

Police identified the victims as 24-year-old Regina Ayres of Greenbush, Virginia; her 7-year-old daughter Jordan Ayres; her 2-month-old son Jonathan Ayres; her 25-year-old boyfriend Travis Straton of Onancock, Virginia; and Regina Ayers' 30-year-old sister Zarissa Ayers and her unborn child.

A truck driver from Wilmington, Delaware was injured in the crash.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
