Deadly Car Accident near Pineville, Missouri

Two people were killed in a three car accident near Pineville Thursday afternoon.
MCDONALD COUNTY, MISSOURI -- Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly three car accident involving a local family.  It  happened on Highway 71 near Pineville Thursday afternoon.  According to investigators, a truck changed lanes in front of another truck, causing the second truck to rear end it.  The rear-ended truck then crossed over and hit a van carrying a family from Bentonville.  Troopers say the van ran off the road and flipped.  Investigators say two people in the van were killed, a 20 and 16-year-old.  Four others were injured.  The identities of the victims are listed in the report, but at this time KNWA and Fox 24 are choosing not to run their names, at the request of the Bentonville School District.  Troopers tested the drivers of both trucks for alcohol, but we do not know the results of those tests at this time.  We'll have more information as it becomes available.
