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.
