When officers arrived at the overpass, they observed the car had hit a semi tractor trailer. Two of the occupants of the car died at the scene. The third occupant was transported to a local hospital, and succumbed to his injuries. The driver of the semi refused medical treatment at the scene. The Lake County Sheriff’s Department Traffic Unit is investigating the crash.
