The first vehicle swerved, went off the road and hit an embankment, according to Marbury. The wife and child who were driving behind the first vehicle saw the crash.
The man was trapped in the vehicle and died on impact, Marbury said.
The children, girls age 13 and 5, were removed from the vehicle by emergency workers and had “extensive” injuries, Marbury said. Both girls were taken to local hospitals and remain in critical condition.
No identities were released.
