RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- The North Carolina Highway Patrol says five people were killed when the vehicle they were riding in skidded off a rain-slicked road and tumbled into a ditch filled with water.

State Highway Patrol Sgt. J.E. Brewer said the five people from Atlanta were traveling westbound on U.S. 64 east of Creswell around noon Thursday when their vehicle hit a patch of standing water, hydroplaned and skidded off the highway and into the ditch.

Brewer identified the five as 25-year-old Daniel Alvarez, who was the driver; his wife, 26-year-old Natalie Owens; 2-year-old twins Vacharia and Ezeikeo Alvarez; and 1-year-old Ariela Alvarez.

Creswell is approximately 145 miles east of Raleigh.
