FORT WORTH, Texas -- A teenager from an overturned pickup truck told a 911 operator "it's bad" and requested ambulances after a North Texas crash left four people dead.

The Tarrant County Sheriff's Office released recordings of 911 calls Thursday, mostly from drivers who came upon the accident southeast of Fort Worth.

Sheriff's spokesman Terry Grisham says a pickup driven by a 16-year-old with seven teenage passengers hit a disabled sport utility vehicle on a roadside late Saturday. The SUV driver, two nearby residents and a man who also stopped to help were killed.

Nine people were injured. Grisham says the pickup also hit a car traveling in the opposite direction.

Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission spokeswoman Carolyn Beck has said the agency is trying to determine if someone under 21 was illegally served alcohol.
