SOUTH BAY, Fla. (AP) – Four people are dead following a crash in the early morning fog along U.S. 27 in western Palm Beach County.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the trailer detached from a truck driving south Tuesday morning. Several vehicles then hit the trailer.

The names of the victims haven’t been released. One person was taken to a hospital in Delray Beach for treatment. Another suffered minor injuries.

Fire Rescue Capt. Albert Borroto told the Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/18COQcV ) there was heavy fog in the area at the time of the crash.

An investigation continues.
