A five-vehicle accident killed two people Saturday afternoon, according to law enforcement officials.
Trooper Dark said two vehicles came to a stop behind the vehicle making a turn, but the fourth vehicle at the back of the line did not stop and rear-ended the third vehicle in the lineup, sending it into the eastbound lane.
Trooper Dark said preliminary information suggested the vehicle was struck by the eastbound car on the passenger side, killing a mother and her 11-year-old son.
She said the victims were identified as Tammy and Rowdy Latson.
Trooper Dark said the incident is still under investigation and because of the number of cars involved, full crash reports were still being compiled as of Sunday afternoon.
