The accident occurred at approximately 11:20 p.m. when a vehicle traveling northbound on Nord Avenue failed to stop at a stop sign and collided into a semi. The impact caused the vehicle to be pinned underneath the semi.

The occupants of the vehicle, two men and two women, were killed as a result of the collision.

The driver of the semi did not appear to sustain any injuries from the collision.

An investigation is ongoing to determine if drugs ad alcohol were factors in to the collision.

““Sadly, there are no words that can comfort the men and women’s family and friends as they cope with such an incredible loss,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm. “The thoughts and prayers of our staff are with them, as well as the young people who were injured, as they try to piece together what happened.”
