SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC. — Three young children from Chicago were among six people killed in a fiery crash in South Carolina earlier this month, according to WBTW.
The crash happened March 19 along I-26 in Spartanburg County, South Carolina.
Officials say a car went off the road, hit a tree, then came back onto the road and was hit by a semi-truck, which burst into flames.
Brandon Simpkins and his girlfriend, Jermy Givens-Reedus, were in the car that was hit.
Both died in the crash.
Also killed were Simpkins’ three children – 6-year old Rachael, 4-year old Robin, and 3-year old Aliyah Simpkins.
A good Samaritan who stopped to help them was also killed in the crash.
A GoFundMe has been setup for the children’s mother, Dennissia Mcdougald, to help her pay for their funeral.
