Police in Alabama continue to investigate a collision between a car and a tractor-trailer that killed three people, including a couple from Maine.

State troopers say the accident occurred at 7 Friday night on Alabama Highway 59 just south of Loxley when 64-year-old Charles H. Miller Junior of Benton, Maine, apparently pulled his car into the path of a southbound tractor-trailer.

Troopers say Miller, his 61-year-old wife, Emelda Miller, and another passenger, 39-year-old Mona Carter of Loxley, all died in the crash.

The Millers had on seat belts in the front seat. Carter was in the back seat and was not wearing a seat belt. The truck driver was slightly injured and treated at a hospital.
