Three people, including a father and daughter, were killed Friday in a wreck involving three vehicles about 5:15 p.m. at Ga. 136 and Ga. 201 in the Villanow community.

The father and daughter were 36-year-old Anthony Hixon of LaFayette and 11-year-old Amber.

The third person, James Whitaker of LaFayette, was airlifted to Erlanger hospital in Chattanooga, where he died.

Authorities said an out-of-control truck hit one vehicle and then crashed head-on into the victims’ vehicle.

Family and friends are planning a candlelight vigil Sunday at 8 p.m. at Rock Springs Methodist Church.
