— Three people died Tuesday morning after their car crashed into a canal in Robeson County. A state trooper says the driver lost control coming around a curve on Barker Ten Mile Road.

The car flipped and landed upside down in the canal where much of it was submerged.

All three were residents of Lumberton.
