The Texas Department of Public Safety says the wreck happened Friday night on westbound Texas 21 near Bastrop.

The car, driven by the children's mother, was stopped on the highway to make a turn when a pickup rear-ended it.

The victims were identified as Tiffany, Michael, and Danielle Williams and their friend Peyton Irwin.

The mother, Pam Williams, was reportedly in a coma.

A Huntsville Independent School District statement on Sunday said one of the siblings who died was a high school junior, one was an eighth grader and the third was a sixth grader.

The friend who died was a 2018 Huntsville High School graduate.

The DPS says the pickup driver and a passenger weren't hurt.
