PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) --

Five adults have died and four children were injured after an SUV blew a tire and flipped over on Interstate 95 near central Florida.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said driver Hugo Campos-Leon
and his family were driving home to Eustis after a family reunion
in North Carolina when a back tire blew on his 1996 Ford
Expedition. He lost control and hit several trees before the
vehicle flipped. The 18-year-old was pronounced dead at the
hospital.

Lt. Bill Leeper said only two victims were wearing their seat
belts. Several victims were ejected from the vehicle.

Leeper said the four children were taken to the hospital with
non life threatening injuries.
