Marshall County officials say a fourth person has died in a rollover crash near Guntersville on Sunday.

 

County Coroner Marlon Killion says 19-year-old John Lawson of Guntersville, 21-year-old Blake Keener, of Albertville, 18-year-old Ruben Pacheco, and an unidentified 13-year-old girl were killed in the crash.

 

Authorities say Lawson was driving at the time of the accident.

 

State troopers have said the pickup truck was carrying more than 10 children and flipped on U.S. highway 431 Sunday afternoon. Witnesses told police the children spilled from the truck as it began flipping, and the truck burst into flames soon afterward.

 

Authorities say all of the people riding in the truck's cab and bed were ejected in the crash.

 

The cause of the crash is unclear.
