A small Mississippi town is experiencing grief after a Halloween accident left two children and one adult dead. All were related. A vehicle struck the flatbed tractor trailer that had been carrying adults and children dressed up for Halloween. Coroner Danny Schumaker called the scene “chaos.” The accident occurred on Highway 80 in Chunky, Mississippi.
The coroner reported that two people died at the scene and the third died while waiting for a medical helicopter. It took three helicopters and multiple ambulances to carry the injured to hospitals. Some of the injured were suffering from life-threatening injuries.
Details about the number of injured and the cause of the accident were not immediately available. Investigators were still on the scene late in the evening Monday following the accident.
Chunky is a small town with a population of about 325, just on the border with Alabama.
Hayrides can be fun, but people in them are rarely buckled in. This means it is easy for them to get knocked out of the vehicle if it gets struck.
