KOYLTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say five people have died after the car they were riding in went off the road on a curve, struck a tree and flipped in Tuscola County.

The sheriff's department says in statement that the 38-year-old driver of the Ford Mustang apparently failed to negotiate the curve about 2:20 a.m. Saturday in Koylton Township, about 65 miles north of Detroit.

The department says all five people in the car were pronounced dead at the scene.

The department says the driver was a woman from the nearby community of Marlette. Also killed in the crash were a 30-year-old Troy man, a 46-year-old Marlette woman, a 35-year-old Kingston man and a 36-year-old North Branch man.

Names weren't immediately released. WSGW-AM, which first reported details, says the crash was under investigation.
