RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Virginia State Police say crashes in Prince George County and Caroline County have killed five people.

State police say three died Saturday afternoon in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 95 in Prince George County. The vehicle was traveling north on the interstate when it ran off the road and struck a tree. Two men and woman died in the crash. State police said no one was wearing a seatbelt.

The victims have not been identified.

About the same time in Caroline County, a vehicle traveling east on Route 207 collided with a pickup truck, which then ran off the road and struck utility pole. Two passengers in the pickup were killed. State police identified the victims as Colonial Beach residents.

Police say charges are pending in that crash.
