Four people are dead and two others in serious condition after a two-vehicle crash in Polk County around noon Monday.
Polk sheriff’s officials said the crash occurred on Lake Hatchineha Road and Watkins Road, which is east of Haines City.
One of the vehicles caught fire after the crash. Three of the victims were taken to a hospital by helicopter as “trauma alerts” and one of them later died, the Sheriff’s Office said.
More information was expected to be released Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Office said.
