Three people were dead at the scene before 4 a.m. They haven't been named while officials try to determine their identities and relatives are notified.

Rescue workers took 23-year-old Donchristopher Roach and 28-year-old Kim Davis to Thomasville Medical Center for treatment. The hospital didn't list either of the Lexington residents as patients Sunday afternoon.

Police say the investigation is continuing.
