PINEVILLE, MO---Katelyn Boxx, 16, and Bethany Boxx, 20, both of Bentonville, Ark., were pronounced dead at the scene of a three-car accident. Katelyn and Bethany were killed when the van in which they were passengers went off the highway and overturned. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident happened on Interstate 49 in Pineville, a little before 3pm Thursday.

According to the traffic report, a Dodge Ram changed lanes in front of a Chevrolet while headed northbound on US 71. The Chevrolet struck the Dodge in the rear, causing the Dodge to cross the roadway and slam head on into the Boxx's van. The van left the right side of the roadway and overturned.

Gracen Boxx, 18, was flown by medical helicopter to a hospital in Joplin in serious condition. Three others were treated for minor and moderate injuries.
