The vehicle then left the south side of the roadway causing the vehicle to roll over multiple times. 

The investigation is ongoing at this time.

All notifications to the families have been made notified.

Trooper Gallagher reported four persons were in the vehicle and all were transported to area hospitals with injuries.

Due to a language barrier Gallagher was not immediately able to identify the persons in the vehicle.
