BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - Police say a Georgia woman and her three children have been killed in a fiery eight-vehicle accident on westbound Interstate 10 in Southeast Texas.

A Beaumont police spokeswoman say traffic had slowed around dawn Thursday due to an unrelated accident ahead when an 18-wheeler at the rear plowed into the other vehicles.

Officer Haley Morrow on Friday identified the victims as 36-year-old Chelsea Stanbury, 10-year-old Anthony Stanbury Jr., 8-year-old Anaiyah Stanbury and 6-year-old Chase Stanbury, all from Marietta, Georgia. Three other people in the family’s SUV survived.

Morrow says several people in other vehicles suffered minor injuries.

She says I-10 was dry during the multivehicle accident and weather was not a factor.

Beaumont is 80 miles (128.74 kilometers) northeast of Houston.
