LINCOLN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) - This is what the State Highway Patrol said happened Friday night in an accident that killed four people, including three teens.

A Dodge Stratus driven by 17-year-old Dustin Hall was on Watts Lane traveling southbound crossing over Highway 84 onto Lower Meadville Drive when a pickup truck driven by 40-year-old Donald Dickerson was traveling east on Highway 84, the two vehicles collided.

Four people inside that Stratus were killed and six other people involved in this accident were injured.

"It hurts. It's sad," said Cody Caves, cousin of two victims. 

Caves will now only have memories of one of his cousins, 17-year-old Kylee McCord and he hopes his other cousin, 17-year-old Dustin Hall.. will pull through.

McCord along with 16-year old Faith White, 19-year-old Nicholas King and 21-year-old Curtis Gunnel were killed in the accident Friday night just before 11 p.m.

 Ricky Williams, 22,  and 18-year-old Linza Black were injured. All of them, seven people altogether, were in the car driven by Hall. The car and a pickup truck collided at this intersection.

The three in the truck, Sean Williams and Aireona Allison, both 23-years-old, and the driver 40-year-old Donald Dickerson, were injured. Allison's injuries and Dustin Hall's injuries are life threatening.

"I think they was coming from town, is all I know. And headed somewhere up this way? Right down yonder to his house. Curtis' house," added Caves.

High School friends visiting the scene of the accident said they're in shock.

"They went to West Lincoln, whenever, they were still in West Lincoln, I know Dustin, he had graduated from Camp Shelby. Last I talked to him he was looking into a career in the military," added Luke Ferrell friend of the victims.

Ferrell was good friends with Curtis Gunnel.

"He was a character to be around. You never see him in a bad mood, he was always happy," said Ferrell. 

And there's still so much to learn about what exactly happened in this wreck, it is still under investigation.
