CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A 19-year-old, and two minors died, and two others people were injured in a four-car crash Sunday afternoon in Lancaster County.

Troopers said three people in a car trying to pass another car were killed in a head-on collision just after 1 p.m. on S.C. 200 near Zion Road.

Officials said 19-year-old Juan Valencia Gonzalez and two minors died at the scene. The identities of the minors are not being released because of their age.

Deputies said the driver, with two other passengers in a Hyundai Coupe attempted to pass a motorcycle, sideswiped it and then collided with a tractor-trailer headed in the opposite direction.

A fourth car was struck by debris from the crash.

The motorcyclist was airlifted to the hospital. The driver of the tractor-trailer was not hurt.
