MASSIE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Police have identified four people who died in a crash Wednesday morning in Warren County.

The crash occurred around 5 a.m. on Harveysburg Road near Levicy Road and involved a Ford F-250 pick up truck.

Ohio State Highway Patrol has identified the victims as Jonathan Kroninger, 21, of Waynesville, Brittany Gerondale, 26, of Morrow, Rose Feltner, 22, of New Vienna and Benjamin Edwards, 26, of Lebanon.

Police say the driver took a curve too fast, overcorrected, went off the road and rolled several times. All four people were ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. The truck was owned by Edwards, but police say they are still trying to figure out seating arrangements.

Police say alcohol and speed appear to be a factor. Investigators say the group was at Kroninger's house playing cards before the crash.
