Sgt. Michelle Anaya said a 2006 Honda pickup truck was traveling northbound on the southbound lane around 5:42 a.m., when it struck a 2011 Toyota Corolla traveling in the opposite direction.

The driver and three passengers in the car were killed upon impact, as was the driver of the truck. Anaya added that the magnitude of the crash is making it difficult to identify the victims or ascertain if there were any other passengers in the pickup.

It is also unknown if alcohol or other factors contributed to the crash.

Anaya said it could take a couple of days before authorities are able to identify those killed.

Troopers reopened the southbound lanes around 11 a.m. Tuesday.
