Georgia Mom, 3 Children Killed In 8-Vehicle Texas Crash

BEAUMONT (AP) — Police say a Georgia woman and her three children were killed in a fiery eight-vehicle accident on westbound Interstate 10 in Southeast Texas.

A Beaumont police spokeswoman said traffic had slowed around dawn Thursday due to an unrelated accident ahead when an 18-wheeler at the rear plowed into the other vehicles.

Officer Haley Morrow on Friday identified the victims as 36-year-old Chelsea Stanbury, 10-year-old Anthony Stanbury Jr., 8-year-old Anaiyah Stanbury and 6-year-old Chase Stanbury, all from Marietta, Georgia. Three other people in the family's SUV survived.

Morrow says several people in other vehicles suffered minor injuries.

She says I-10 was dry during the multivehicle accident and weather was not a factor.

Beaumont is 80 miles northeast of Houston.
