FLORENCE, Miss. —Two people were killed Tuesday when the vehicle they were in collided with an 18-wheeler near Florence, emergency officials said.
The coroner said Claudie Allen, 82, and Clara Allen, 77, were killed in the crash.
The 18-wheeler appeared to have been headed northbound on Highway 49, when it collided with a Volvo police believe was pulling into traffic. The Volvo was struck on the driver's side.
The crash happened about 2 p.m., across from Chancellor Funeral Home. Employees at the funeral home said the people in the Volvo may have been pulling out of the cemetery.
The Jaws of Life were used to remove one of the victims from the vehicle, police said.
The 18-wheeler ended up in the median, police said. The truck driver was not seriously injured, police said.
