Car accident leaves two people dead

New information overnight on a fatal head-on car accident. The accident happened at the intersection of Princeton and White Station late last night.

Traffic investigators say a white pick-up truck was traveling southbound on White Station when the driver lost control of his truck and hit a Pontiac Bonneville head on. The driver was thrown from the truck and pronounced dead on the scene. The driver of the Bonneville had to be cut out of her car. She also died on the scene. Two children were riding in the car and were transported to LeBonheur. They're expected to be okay.

Police say since New Years, they've been busy with deadly crashes. "There have been three to my knowledge..it's already been a busy year", said Ron Fittes of the Memphis Police Department. "Four days into the year and we've already had three fatalities".

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
