3 siblings killed in a car wreck
LUCEDALE, Miss. - A grieving community has held a candlelight vigil and funeral services for three siblings who died in a car crash.
The Sun Herald reports that the three were passengers in a car that slammed into a sign off a highway on Sunday, March 26. The driver, 23-year-old Jesse Edward Dickerson, is under arrest for four counts of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
The children killed were 7-year-old Sierra Jean Dixon, 9-year-old Terra Dixon and 16-year-old Spencer Havard. Their mother, who was also in the car, is being treated for critical injuries in Mobile, Alabama.
Tuesday's vigil drew nearly 1,000 people. During Wednesday's funeral services, a pastor said that the girls were avid church-goers and their brother liked to hunt and fish.
