Six people were injured in a vehicle crash in Yardley, Pennsylvania Sunday evening.

LOWER MAKEFIELD TWP., N.J. -- Pennsylvania State Police have identified the victims of Sunday's deadly crash on I-95 North in Bucks County.

Natasha Bellott of Bloomfield, N.J., was killed in the crash, which happened before 7 p.m. Sunday just south of the Yardley-Newtown Road exit in Lower Makefield Township.

Police say Bellott, who had just turned 20, was traveling home from attending "American Idol" auditions held at Temple University's Liacouras Center in Philadelphia.

Witnesses told police the 2003 silver Jeep Liberty SUV carrying the group was "flying" at high speeds when it flipped and rolled over.

Leslie McCoy, 19, of Monclair, N.J., remains hospitalized at St. Mary Medical Center with a head injury and fractured ribs.

Carl Delpolito, 24, of Bloomfield, N.J., and 18-year-old Jacob Gorski of East Orange, N.J., were being treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Capital Health Hospital in Trenton.

The 17-year-old female driver, from Belleville, N.J., and a 16-year-old female passenger, from Bloomfield, N.J., were also being treated at Capital Health for non-life-threatening injuries.

State police say the crash happened after the Jeep's driver passed another vehicle in the right shoulder of I-95 North at high speed.

The SUV then crossed both northbound lanes into the grassy median and rolled several times, ejecting three of the people inside.

The crash remains under investigation.

Pennsylvania State Police are asking anyone who witnessed the crash to call the Trevose Barracks at 215-942-3900.
