UPDATE: Victims identified in deadly Hwy 7 crash

Arkansas State Police have identified 5 people who died Thursday night in a 3 car accident on Highway 7.
LITTLE ROCK, AR – Allen Dunham lives about 100 away from the spot on Highway 7, just north of Bismarck, where three cars collided last night - killing 5 people and injuring another two.

"It was horrifying. It really was,” Dunham said. “And my son and me could not sleep all night. I don't, I'm sorry."

Police say the crash happened when a Chevy Trailblazer traveling north on Highway 7 and being driven by 37-year-old Brandy Kizziar crossed into the southbound lane and hit a Chevy pick-up truck head on.

A third vehicle, a Chevy Malibu, then rear ended the pick-up.

Kizziar died in the wreck as did four of the five people in the pick-up truck: 41-year-old Edgar Martinez, 40-year-old Eva Martinez, 16-year-old Jose Hernandez, and 2-year-old Chris Rocha. Lacero Ramos is a friend of the Martinez family.

"We feel real bad and I hope Jesus has him over there with family now," Ramos said.

Dunham says he feels bad too. Also, he hopes people driving down highway seven learn from the crash and slow down, saying these lives didn't have to be lost.

"The accident was bad, and this close to the holidays, I don’t know what to say, I really don't."

The investigation is ongoing.
