The state trooper investigating Tuesday’s deadly crash on I-40 has identified the victim and those injured. The trooper doesn’t speculate on the reason for the one-car wreck.
Denetrice M Horton, 21, was killed and four other people were injured. Horton lived in Millington, Tennessee.
Emergency services were called about 2:50 p.m. to the eastbound lane of I-40 near the 44 mile-marker. All five occupants were thrown from the car during the crash. Three of the victims were seriously injured and airlifted to The Med in Memphis. EMS called three helicopters to the scene. Two other occupants were taken to the hospital by ambulance. Sources say they were not seriously hurt.
The injured include Kristyn Bennett, 22; Pechone L. Jennings Jr., 22; Antoine L Quin, 20 and Korry E. Harris, 20. All have Memphis addresses.
The 2003 Mazda M6, driven by Horton, was eastbound when it left the road, according to a THP spokesman. The trooper’s report states use of seatbelts “unknown.”
