Posted: Updated:

ATMORE, Ala. (AP) - Two children from North Carolina died in a five-vehicle crash in southwest Alabama.

State troopers said 7-year-old Naziya Gillis and 9-year-old Nadir Gillis of Camp Lejeune, N.C., were killed when the Dodge Challenger in which they were riding was struck by a tractor-trailer truck.

The driver of the Dodge, 28-year-old Isom Hodges, and a passenger, 30-year-old Labricia Hodges, both of Camp Lejeune, were injured. The driver of another car, 42-year-old William Rousey of Lexington, Ky., was also injured. No other drivers, including the truck driver, were injured.

State troopers said they are investigating what caused the collision at 10:50 p.m. Sunday on Interstate 65 about three miles south of Atmore. The wreck tied up traffic for several hours.
