BABYLON, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a car veered off a New York highway, struck a tree and burst into flames, killing the two adults and three children who were inside.

State police said early Sunday that a Honda Accord driven by 37-year-old Myriam Lebrun was traveling westbound on the Southern State Parkway in Long Island when it left the highway just before 11 p.m. Saturday. The vehicle struck a tree before bursting into flames.

All five people in the car died. State police identified the other victims as 68-year-old Moise Yolande, 14-year-old Marcus Jeanty, 9-year-old Marcel Jeanty and 8-year-old Kayla Jeanty. Authorities say they were returning to Brooklyn after a family gathering.

State police say the cause of the crash is under investigation.
