Police say the crash happened at around 3:30 a.m. Saturday in Anne Arundel County, about 15 miles west of Annapolis. Three people were dead at the scene, and one person died on the way to the hospital.

Three victims were in the vehicle traveling the wrong way. Police identified them as 18-year-old Breanna Marie Franco, 19-year-old Brittany Ann Walker and 18-year-old Zachary Tyler Rose.

The name of the fourth victim, who was in the vehicle traveling the right way, wasn’t immediately released.

Police are investigating. It is not known whether alcohol or speed were factors in the crash.
