PINE BEACH, N.J. (AP) — Investigators say three people who were killed when their vehicle slammed into a New Jersey elementary school Thursday were not wearing seatbelts.

Deputy Chief Michael Mohel of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office says the impact from the 2011 Hyundai Accent left a 6-foot-by-6-foot hole in the brick wall adjacent to the Pine Beach Elementary school’s media room.

The accident remains under investigation and autopsies are planned.

A school employee found the car around 6:45 a.m. The school was not open and no students were present.

The school delayed opening by 90 minutes.
