AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities in Ohio say a car has crashed into a retaining wall and a light pole and burst into flames, killing all four people in the vehicle.

The Summit County Medical Examiner's office says in a release that the crash occurred shortly before 3:30 a.m. Monday in Akron. The medical examiner's office says the car left the road, hit the retaining wall and then traveled back across the road where it crashed into the light pole and caught fire. The four occupants of the car all died at the scene.

Authorities haven't released the identities of those killed or said what could have caused the car to leave the road.

Akron police are continuing their investigation into the crash.
