LUMBERTON, N.C. (AP) _ Five people on their way to a funeral were killed early Saturday when the driver of the van they were riding in lost control of the vehicle, sideswiped another car and overturned.

The van overturned several times, ejecting several passengers and ripping seats out of the vehicle.

Five other people in the van were injured in the 1:30 a.m. accident on Interstate 95, authorities said. Their injuries were not life threatening. The five injured also were from New Jersey.

No one in the car was injured.

Police said no alcohol was involved and it appears the van's driver had a momentary lapse of concentration or dozed off.

The van was traveling to Florence, S.C., for the funeral of a family member.

The five killed were identified as Leroy Brown, 71, Vera Porter, 63, Malachi Brown, 62, Oletha Cameron, 57, and Oma Brown, 88. All are from Paterson, N.J.

Lumberton is about 70 miles southwest of Raleigh.
