Their statements right now say that a 40-year-old Liberty woman, her 13-year-old daughter, and a 2-year-old girl were in a Dodge Nitro traveling southbound along Eagle Drive. Ahead of them, authorities say that a tractor-trailer that was initially going northbound attempted to make a u-turn. As it did so, the truck apparently became stuck, and it left the trailer portion of the vehicle perpendicular across both lanes of Eagle Drive. While the trailer was blocking travel lanes, the Dodge Nitro crashed into it.

As a result of the collision, the woman and the teenager in the car sustained fatal injuries. The 2-year-old was apparently flown to a hospital. No other injuries were confirmed. Right now, there is not mention of potential charges or citations. Additional details are unavailable.
