Three people — including a five year old — are dead and five more injured following a chaotic wreck that ensued after a car driven by a 19-year-old Beaufort teen crossed an Interstate median.

That car was a Honda Pilot minivan and the driver was Mary Trumps, who suffered a broken ankle and is due to be returned home to Beaufort soon.

The story, as you might expect, is somewhat hazy, but officials believe that Trumps lost control of the van and crossed the median of I-10 near Tallahassee (map below).

The car then struck a Nissan sedan, then a GMC Yukon collided with the Nissan.

Many reports abound on this, but WCTV seems to have the better report updates and video; get that here.

We'll be sure to keep you updated.
