Three people were killed and several others injured when a truck collided with a hayride in Chunky, Mississippi, outside of Meridian this past Halloween.
Local news station WLBT reports adults and children sat in the back of a hay-lined flatbed truck when a Ford F-150 rear ended it.
Several ambulances and three helicopters were dispatched to the scene where two children and one adult were pronounced dead. The injured were rushed to nearby hospitals.
Mississippi Highway Patrol Sergeant Andy West said of the accident, "the number of people injured hasn't been released and authorities are still uncertain as to what caused the crash."
