New York (CNN) -- Three people were found dead in a car Thursday morning that crashed into an elementary school in Pine Beach, New Jersey, authorities said.

The unidentified victims were found when police arrived at Pine Beach Elementary School, said Mike Mohel, media relations officer for the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.

A call made by a school employee was received by the Pine Beach police department at 6:45 a.m. The vehicle was found nose down in a vertical position.

"There appears as if there is a large hole in the side of the school building as a result of the car crash," Mohel said.

No school employees or students were injured. The crash is currently under investigation.
