All five people in the Honda, four women and a man, died at the scene, authorities said.

Simeon was hospitalized with serious injuries. He was charged with five counts of vehicular homicide, police said Monday. Simeon will be booked into jail after he's released from the hospital.

A Florida Highway Patrol spokesman declined to name the victims because it is a criminal investigation. They are ages 18 to 25.
