BRANDON, Miss. (AP) — Two people have been killed and three others hurt in a crash in Mississippi.

Cpl. Kervin Stewart with the Mississippi Highway Patrol told news outlets that the wreck happened late Sunday night on U.S. 49 in Rankin County.

Stewart says a pickup truck pulling a trailer ran into the back of a dump truck. The two people killed were in the pickup, as were two those who were hurt. They were taken to the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. The dump truck driver was also taken to that hospital with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening.

The names of the victims had not been released late Monday morning while relatives were being notified.
