Authorities indicated 22-year-old Quintarian Turner, 29-year-old Vernicia McClendon, and a third individual were killed when the southbound Jeep Patriot they were in was allegedly hit by a northbound tractor-trailer that attempted to turn westbound at the intersection. Turner, McClendon, and a third as-of-yet unidentified individual were pronounced dead following the collision.
