PHENIX CITY, Ala. - Authorities say three adults and two children were killed in a head-on collision between their car and a semitrailer on an eastern Alabama highway.

Russell County Coroner Arthur Sumbry Jr. says all of the victims are from Albany, Louisiana.

A young woman Carrie Jones, 32, and her two children, Trinity Jones, 7, and Jackson Jones, 4 were killed. Also killed were twin sisters Judy Madere and Trudy Herbert, both 58.

Authorities say there were no survivors in their vehicle, a Nissan Rogue, which collided with the semi on U.S. 80 outside Phenix City, Alabama, on Monday.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports the semi driver was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Carrie Patrick, who lives along the highway, tells the newspaper that passing motorists had stopped and were climbing atop the mangled car in a desperate attempt to reach the victims.
