DALLAS (AP) - Police say a speeding car slammed into a tree after losing control along a Dallas roadway, killing all six people inside.

Dallas police officer Monica Cordova says the crash occurred Sunday night in a residential area in southeast Dallas. The victims were two teenage boys, two men and two women ranging in age from 15 to 23.
