I was behind the car when it crashed. one of the tires just came off their car and the driver turned right off the highway. the car flipped several times. we made a count of people at the scene. there was 6 people(a man, three woman and two girls). only two were ejected(man and the older of the little girls). two people dead at the scene(one male who was ejected and one female who had seatbelt on in the passenger side). I don't believe anyone had seatbelts on in the back.
