In their initial statements, authorities said that A 43-year-old woman and three minors, ages 15, 12, and 8, were in a Toyota Rav4 traveling on U.S. 59. Up ahead, it appears that an 18-wheeler traveling the same direction attempted a left turn at the crossover, entering the path of the Toyota. As a result, the two vehicles collided.

Due to the collision, the 12-year-old in the Toyota had apparently incapacitating injuries. The 8-year-old had injuries described as non-incapacitating. It's unclear whether or not anyone else was hurt. Authorities did not confirm if there would be charges against the driver of the 18-wheeler. No further information is available.
