I heard it was the 7 year old n a two year old was doa. No parent should have to bury their own child so young. Pray for this family cause God is the only one to get them though this.

What is sad is people jumping on topix after each catastrophic incident to feed off it. I give it til morning til people starting laying blame on whose fault the accident was and discussing people's home lives and talking trash. Actually, it probably won't take that long.

two children dead; four others in very critical condition. Head on collision right where the four lane merges down near Avon St. Van had two people in it and was headed toward Bristol; Ford taurus had four people in it and was headed toward Hampton.
Just guessing but it appears the Ford got the worst end of the collision.
Any word on where the people were from, and who they were?
Prayers for the families involved and souls of the faithful departed........

According to the Elizabethton Star:

Four-car accident on 19E leaves eight injured
By Abby Morris

A four-car accident that occurred on U.S. Highway 19E at the intersection of Clay Little Road left eight people injured, including three young children, on Thursday just after 5 p.m.
According to Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper Dexter Lunceford, the accident began when a white pickup truck driven by Allison Repass, 30, of Hampton, struck a red pickup in the rear driven by David Caldwell, Jr., 56, of Hampton.
The two trucks were traveling northbound on U.S. Highway 19E, and Caldwell was moving into the turning lane preparing to make a left turn onto Clay Little Road when the accident occurred.
After being struck, the red Toyota flipped on its side, and Caldwell and his passenger, Danny Holder, of Elizabethton, were ejected. Neither were wearing a safety belt, according to Lunceford.
The red pickup then continued sliding across the highway into the southbound lanes of traffic and struck a gray utility truck owned by the Elizabethton Housing Authority and driven by David Timbs, 35, of Elizabethton, causing the truck to leave the road and strike a utility pole.
The red pickup also traveled into the southbound lanes of traffic and struck a gray Subaru station wagon driven by Anthony Glass, 55, of Elizabethton. The white truck and gray Subaru then left the road and both came to rest on an embankment.
Three small children under the age of six were passengers in the truck driven by Repass, according to Lunceford, and none of the children were in child restraint devices. The children all sustained minor injuries.
"Ms. Repass was charged with following improperly, three violations of child restraints and not having insurance," Lunceford said.
Repass, the three children, and a passenger in the Subaru, Billie Oliver, were all transported to Sycamore Shoals hospital for treatment and were later released.
Caldwell and Holder, who were ejected from the red pickup along with Timbs, were transported to the Johnson City Medical Center for treatment. They remained in the Emergency Room receiving treatment Thursday night, and further information on their condition was unavailable. According to Lunceford, Caldwell, Holder and Timbs were all conscious and responsive when he spoke to them after the accident.
Glass, driver of the Subaru, and Cecil Whitehead, a passenger in the gray utility truck, were not injured.

The wreck listed by Siam Girl is a different wreck. Two children were killed - a two year old and a 7 year old. One was pronounced dead at the scene. A 13-year old and an adult were also in that vehicle - Ford Taurus. It crossed the median and hit the van which had a woman and child.
