POLK COUNTY -- A late night crash has claimed the lives of three people in Polk county.
The accident happened around 11 o'clock Saturday night near County Road 140 and Mount Gilead--just east of Bolivar.
Troopers say the car sped through an intersection, crossed into a field before hitting an out-building, and burst into flames.
The names and ages of those killed are expected to be released once family members are notified.
The fire marshall is helping the highway patrol with the investigation.
