COVINGTON COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Three people, including a small child, were killed and another person was sent to the hospital following a high speed car chase in Jefferson Davis and Covington Counties Tuesday.  

Covington County coroner Chris Daquila said Yshaneeta Magee, 33, of Prentiss and Jeremiah Barnes, 2, of Prentiss, died when their Pontiac G6 ran off the road and hit a tree on Lone Star Road in Covington County around 11:30 a.m.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

A third passenger, Chiquita Barnes Flowers, 22, of Prentiss, died later at Forrest General Hospital.
