HAMMOND - A woman and two children are dead after a vehicle ran a stop sign in Tangipahoa Parish, according to Louisiana State Police.

Trooper Nick Manale said the wreck happened this morning on U. S. 190 where it intersects with N. Coburn Road.

Manale said a car driven by Sarah Robertson, 26, of Independence was going south on N. Coburn when it didn't stop at the stop sign, and drove out in front of a westbound pickup which it on the driver's side.

Robertson and two children, 5-year-old Skyler Ciccio and 12-year-old Mandy Dennis, were pronounced dead after being taken to the hospital. Two other passengers, 20-year-old Travis Tackett and a 4-year-old child, had moderate injuries. The driver of the pickup, 26-year-old Alan Grice, had no injuries.

Manale said all the occupants of both vehicles were properly restrained with seat belts and child safety seats. Alcohol and drug impairment is unknown right now, pending the results of a toxicology exam.
