ALICEVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Alabama State Troopers are identifying three people who died in a one-car wreck near Aliceville on Friday.

They say three Aliceville residents died after being thrown from the Dodge Durango.

They are 41-year-old Jeffery Lee Armstrong, 42-year-old Horace James Armstrong and 43-year-old Joe Knox.

Troopers say the car left the road, struck a ditch and flipped several times. The three men died at the scene.

The driver was 31-year-old Aliceville resident Richard Amstrong. He and another passenger were injured and taken to a Birmingham hospital.

Troopers say speed and alcohol use appear to be factors. No one was wearing a seat belt.
