CHUNKY, Miss. (WJTV) — A community comes together to remember the lives of the people killed Halloween night in a Newton County accident.
Many gathered at Chunky Baptist Church Wednesday night for a vigil for Kristina Shaver and her daughters Baylie and Brooke who died in the accident.
Kristina’s third daughter was seriously injured in the crash, along with six others. The accident happened after a truck hit the back of a trailer they were using for a hayride.
“Bad things happen all over something of this magnitude is new to everyone around here, we’re a tight knit family everybody knows everybody, wherever you go and we mourn together,” said Danny Todd, organizer of vigil.
The accident is still under investigation.
