JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Authorities have released the names of three children killed in a crash in Mississippi's Madison County.
The Mississippi Highway Patrol said Monday 8-year-old Kambreonna Brown, 6-year-old Jayden Pepper, and 1-year-old Anoni Johnson were passengers in a Nissan Altima that was rear-ended Saturday night on I-55 by a tractor-trailer.
The collision pushed the Altima off the road and into a guard rail.
The children were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the sedan along with an adult passenger were injured and taken to a hospital.
Highway Patrol Capt. John Poulos said the driver of the truck was not hurt.
The crash is under investigation.
