Authorities are still investigating a crash on Interstate 55 near Litchfield Friday morning that killed a woman and two children.
27-year-old Alea Shannon, 8-year-old Alfredo McGee, Jr. and 2-year-old Armando McGee were pronounced dead at the scene. They were passengers in a vehicle that for some reason was stopped in the right-hand northbound lane of the interstate with no lights on. The car was rear-ended by a cargo van.
Three other people in the car were taken to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.
