TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- Two people are dead after an accident this morning on South Gloster Street involving an 18 wheeler.

Lee County Coroner Carolyn Green says Olida Acosta, 20, and her two-year-old daughter, Viarett Castillo died from injuries sustained in the crash.  Both were from Shannon.

According to authorities, the driver of the 18 wheeler got out of the truck to make a delivery on Mitchell Road. 
Investigators say the driver put the big rig in neutral and the truck began to roll down Mitchell Road, hitting the car and pushing it into the Acceptance Auto Insurance building at 1605 South Gloster.

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.
