ELLABELL, Ga. (AP) - Funerals are set for some of the five Georgia Southern University students killed in a crash that took five lives.

WXIA-TV (https://on.11alive.com/1Fmbwvr ) reports McKay Pittman’s funeral was scheduled for Saturday afternoon at the First Baptist Church of Alpharetta.

A funeral was set Sunday afternoon for Emily Clark at Burnt Hickory Baptist Church in Powder Springs.

McKay and Clark were among five nursing students who died Wednesday in a six-vehicle wreck on Interstate 16. The crash remains under investigation.

The Georgia State Patrol suspects it began with a tractor-trailer that smashed into stop-and-go traffic that had backed up from an earlier, unrelated wreck. The big truck plowed into two passenger vehicles carrying nursing students to their clinical training shift at a Savannah hospital.
