Initial details about the crash indicate that 82-year-old Bobbie York and 37-year-old Jason York were in a Ford Fusion which came to a stop along southbound lanes of the highway due to construction. While they waited, authorities reported that a dump truck "following too closely" rear-ended the Yorks' vehicle. This caused the Ford to then crash into a Chevy Silverado and a Nissan Murano, as well.

Due to the crash, both Bobbie York and Jason York sustained fatal injuries. 41-year-old Rebecca Thomason was identified as the driver of the Nissan, and details suggest Thomason was taken to a hospital. At last reporting, Thomason was said to be in stable condition. No other injuries were confirmed.

Right now, authorities allege that the driver of the dump truck was driving under the influence. Charges are pending for both DUI and vehicular homicide. Additional details are pending further investigations.
