The victims have been identified as 19-year-old Quentin Ary; 20-year-old Nicole Jacobson; 14-year-old Hunter Tuttle; and 12-year-old Zoey Tuttle of Vinton, all of Vinton; and 17-year-old Triston Randall of Urbana.
The Iowa State Patrol says the victims were in a pick-up truck that collided with a semi. All five died at the scene.
An accident report from the Iowa State Patrol says Ary was driving the pick-up on a rural road, entered an intersection with Iowa Highway 150 and struck a north-bound semi, driven by Jack Youde of Sutherland. Youde escaped injury.
According to investigators, Ary was the only person among the five victims wearing a seatbelt.
