PENNSVILLE, N.J. (AP) — Authorities have released the names of three people killed in a head-on collision in southern New Jersey.

But it’s still not clear what caused the crash, which left two other adults and two small children injured.

Authorities say a car driven by 74-year-old Norma Craft, and another car collided shortly before 9 p.m. Friday in Pennsville. Craft and her two passengers — 63-year-old Diane Nelson and 60-year-old Willard Kidd Jr., all of Carneys Point — were all pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the other car and three passengers — including two small children — were all being treated at hospitals for undisclosed injuries that are not considered life-threatening. Authorities say the two injured adults are from Delaware, but their names have not been released.
