PRESTON, Miss. — A mother, father and two children are dead following a wreck in eastern Mississippi.
Mississippi Highway Patrol Staff Sgt. Andy West tells local media Richard and Naomi Fulton, both 34, and their two children, 13-month old Richard Fulton, Jr. and 3-year old Emma Fulton, died Monday.
West says a Dodge Ram pickup truck crossed into the oncoming lane of Mississippi 21, hitting the family’s Isuzu Rodeo. A third child of the Philadelphia family, 11-year-old Jaylen Fulton, was ejected and later released from a Jackson hospital.
West says only Richard Fulton Sr. was wearing a seatbelt in the Rodeo.
Authorities say Jerome Brown of Philadelphia drove the pickup. He was injured and taken to a local hospital.
Kemper County Sheriff James Moore says troopers continue investigating. No charges have been filed.
