ORMOND BEACH, Fla. - The Florida Highway Patrol has identified three Haitian migrant farmworkers killed when their van flipped over Sunday in Central Florida.

Sgt. Kim Montes said Monday that Benitoh Delice, Sonja Maubrun and Berteau Nazaire died at the scene.  All three were from West Palm Beach, and none was wearing a seat belt, troopers said.

They were among 15 farmworkers in the van traveling to New Jersey for work.
Montes says one of the van's tires separated, causing the driver to lose control on Interstate 95 near the Volusia-Flagler county line.

Two passengers were hospitalized in critical condition. Nine other passengers also were injured.

Montes says the driver, Vilbrun Bertrand of West Palm Beach, suffered minor injuries. He was wearing a seat belt.

The crash remains under investigation. According to FHP, alcohol is not considered a factor.
