MILTON, W.Va. -- Police have identified four people killed in a three-vehicle wreck on Interstate 64 near Milton, West Virginia.

The victims included a family from Plant City, Florida. The Cabell County Sheriff's Office identified them Friday as 45-year-old Wayne Lawrence, his wife, 43-year-old Ginger Lawrence and their daughter, 2-year-old Kelsi Lawrence.

Forty-three-year-old Christopher Rodgers of Ironton, Ohio, also was killed in the Wednesday accident. Eighteen-year-old Christopher Grizzell of West Hamlin was injured.

Police say Grizzell was attempting to move his car to the highway's side because of mechanical failure when a car driven by Rodgers rear-ended the vehicle.

Both westbound vehicles crossed the median. Rodger's car hit the eastbound tractor-trailer head-on and the 18-wheeler caught fire.
