TYLER, Texas (AP) — Investigators say two boys and three girls died when a crowded SUV they were traveling in crashed in East Texas.

Department of Public Safety Trooper Jean Dark says three other children and two adults were hurt in the one-vehicle rollover Monday near Van, about 70 miles east of Dallas. One adult and one child were not injured in the crash.

Dark says the GMC Envoy was carrying too many passengers. She says the SUV did not have child safety seats and that nine of the children were ejected from the vehicle.

DPS identified the children who died as: 13-year-old Rosvaelia Jaimes; 7-year-old Omar Jaimes; 6-year-old Saideth Acuna; 3-year-old Ulisa Acuna; and 2-year-old Judith Jaimes. DPS says they all came from Marshall.
