Investigators said the driver drove into the path of a Ford F-250 pickup truck.

The four people in the car were pronounced dead at the crash scene, Hutchinson said. First responders had to use the Jaws of Life to remove the victims' bodies from the wreckage.

The driver of the pickup was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
