The vehicle, a Honda, overturned during the crash near Exit 46, New Highway, at 6:52 a.m. Three of the five passengers were ejected through a rear window, State Police said. A tree toppled onto the car during the crash. No other vehicles were involved.
None of the victims have been identified.
The eastbound parkway reopened early in the afternoon.
