COLUMBIA, Miss. (AP) - Four people - including three teenagers from the same family- have died in a one-vehicle accident in Marion County.
    
Sheriff Berkley Hall tells WDAM-TV (http://bit.ly/NgAHUc ) that three of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene and the fourth died at a Hattiesburg hospital.
   
Hall identified the victims as 16-year-old Cody Young, 14-year-old Dustin Young and 17-year-old Brittany Young, all of Marion County. He says 22-year-old Matthew Case, from Louisiana, was hurt and died later at the hospital.
   
Hall says the accident occurred about 6 p.m. Monday on a county road near the New Hope community. He says the vehicle apparently ran off the road, hit a tree stump, exploded and a caught fire.
   
Hall says the accident is under investigation.
