2 children killed, 2 others hurt in crash


STRAWBERRY PLAINS, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee state trooper says a sport utility vehicle with four children inside rolled three times before striking a tree. 2 of the children were killed in the crash east of Knoxville on Monday afternoon.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported those killed were 6-year-old Jasmine Lane and 11-year-old Preston Lane, both of Jefferson City.

Trooper Barry Jarnagin's report stated 9-year-old Josh Lane and 8-year-old Collin Lane were injured as was the driver, 47-year-old Theresa A. Hackett of Jefferson City.

The trooper said the SUV's tires dropped off the edge of U.S. 11-E and Hackett overcorrected, losing control of the vehicle.

Jarnagin's report stated charges were pending. Everyone in the vehicle wore seat belts.
