Two Children Die in Crash

Investigators say it's unclear if rain was a factor in a fatal accident Sunday just outside Meridian.

Whitney Shumock, 13, from Meridian and Tiffany Holifield, 8, from Laurel died in the one vehicle crash on Interstate 59.

Four others were injured. The driver was listed in critical condition at a Jackson hospital Tuesday.

Investigators said the children were not wearing seatbelts.
