Four people died in an early morning crash Sunday after a driver going the wrong way rammed into their vehicle, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Carolyn Ramos, 41, of Port Saint Lucie was driving on the wrong side of Interstate 95 in Palm City and collided her Jeep into a Chevy pick-up truck, according to WPTV.

Ramos was pulled out of the wreckage and rushed to Lawnwood Medical Center in critical condition, authorities said.

After the crash, the two cars were stuck together and caught fire, killing at least four people inside, including two children, officials said.They said they believe the four people were sitting side-by-side in the pick-up truck.

"Unfortunately the victims, were the people who were going the right way northbound ... we're not exactly sure how many people were in the vehicle because they are, it's crushed and they're totally burned up so we're waiting for the Tri-County people to come out and take it apart and determine exactly who is in the vehicle," a trooper on the scene told WPTV.

The incident remains under investigation and authorities are still trying to determine whether alcohol was a factor.
