BOLIVAR — Authorities have identified three teenage girls killed in a car crash Saturday in southwestern Missouri, but investigators said they still don't know which of the three was driving.

The accident happened around 10:30 p.m. on a Polk County road about a mile east of Bolivar. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the pickup truck the girls were in went through a fence and overturned, hitting a building before catching fire.

The highway patrol identified the girls Monday as Daniella Ayala and Alexis Bootier, both 15, and Gabriella Ayala, 13. All three girls were from Bolivar.
