UPDATE: 5 from Accomack County Killed in Queenstown Crash

Posted: Updated:
WYE MILLS, Md. (AP/WBOC) - Maryland State Police say five people are dead after a Virginia family's car collided with a tractor-trailer in Queen Anne's County.   

Police say three adults, two children and an unborn child were killed in the crash about 1:15 a.m. Saturday on Route 50 in Wye Mills. The car and truck crashed at an intersection near Chesapeake College. The truck apparently rolled over the car before coming to a rest.
   
The victims are identified as 24-year-old Regina Ayres of Greenbush, Virginia; her 7-year-old daughter Jordan Ayres; her 2-month-old son Jonathan Ayres; her 25-year-old boyfriend Travis Straton of Onancock, Virginia; and Regina Ayers' 30-year-old sister Zerissa Ayers and her unborn child.
A truck driver from Wilmington, Delaware was injured in the crash. He was transported by helicopter to the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore.

 State police say the intersection where the crash happened is controlled by a traffic light, but it is not clear which vehicle had the red light at the time.  

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
