SMITH COUNTY — Family members have released the names of the victims involved in Wednesday night's fatal wreck.

The teen who died has been identified as Brytnie Stithem. The two others involved in the accident are identified as C.J. Wilkerson and Brandon Page.

KFXK will bring you more information as it becomes available.

As of 8:00 a.m. on Thursday, the name of the teenager killed as well as the rest of the people involved was not available.

There is still no word on the condition of those injured in the accident.

KFXK will update as soon as this information is available to us.

One teenager is dead and two others are injured in a major wreck in Smith County.

We're told it involved two girls and one boy.

Officials on scene tell KFXK, a car veered off the road and into the woods, and at one time, burst into flames.

They do believe speed was a factor in the crash.

No word if the teens were wearing their seatbelts, because the car was burned so badly.

It happened a little after 9 o'clock Wednesday night on County Road 1178, which is near Highway 155, just South of FM 2661.

Noonday Fire Department responded to the call. They say the vehicle was completely in flames when they arrived.

They put the fire out quickly.

We'll bring you more information as it becomes available to us.
