The crash occurred around 8:20 p.m. when 23-year-old Lex Christopher Currie, driving a Toyota Camry, collided with a Nissan Maxima.

Fire officials took Currie to the hospital where he showed signs of impairment. He suffered minor injuries in the crash.
The driver of the Nissan, a 25-year-old man, suffered serious injuries. His two passengers, 24-year-old Kimberly Sorg and 49-year-old Michelle Kardis, were killed in the crash.
The driver of the Chevy, a 53-year-old woman, suffered minor injuries.
It's unknown if there were any injuries to anyone in the fourth car, a light-colored passenger car, that fled the scene.

Currie has been released from the hospital and has been arrested, facing charges for murder, aggravated assault, and endangerment.
