Holly Springs police say five other occupants of the car were taken Memphis-area hospitals.

They were identified as 17-year-old LaTasha Isom, the victim's sister and driver; 15-year-old Gabrielle Byers, 15-year-old Keyasha Jeffries, 13-year-old R.L. Isom Jr. and 9-year-old Kirstin Byers. Their conditions were not immediately known.
