SCOOBA, Miss. (AP) - A woman from Iowa was among three people killed in a four-vehicle crash this week in eastern Mississippi.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol identified those killed Wednesday as 67-year-old Kathleen Estling of Altoon, Iowa; and 56-year-old Kimberly S. Holliday and 12-year-old Bailey Southerlen, both of Southaven, Mississippi.

Five other people were injured.

Investigators said a southbound pickup crossed the median of U.S. Highway 45 and hit three northbound vehicles - one carrying Estling and another carrying Holliday and Southerlen. The other vehicle hit was a Meridian school bus with a driver but no passengers.

It was the second fatal wreck within three days near the small town of Scooba in Kemper County. Eight people were killed Monday when a box truck and a passenger van collided on Mississippi Highway 16.
