PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Authorities have identified a Texas couple killed in an accident as they participated in a classic car event on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The accident happened in Jackson County on Monday as 76-year-old Norris Wayne Burrow and 79-year-old Janie Kennedy Burrow rode in their 1973 Volkswagen - which had been modified as a dune buggy. The crash occurred when another car pulled into their path.

The Burrows were visiting from Texas. Their home town wasn’t immediately available. They were in Mississippi for the annual week-long Cruisin’ the Coast event, which draws car enthusiasts from around the country.

The accident remains under investigation.
