Three band members of the Southern University marching band were killed after a semi-truck crashed into their car as they were changing a flat tire on the side of a Louisiana highway on Tuesday night.

The crash took place after the students identified as Tyan Williams, 19, Dylan Young, 21 and Broderick Moore, 19, stopped a 1999 Jeep Laredo on the shoulder of northbound I-49 in Natchitoches to fix the flat.

While they were working to change the tire, a 1997 Freightliner drifted onto the shoulder and struck the left side of the Jeep.

The three students, members of Southern University’s renowned Human Jukebox Marching Band, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The semi-truck driver, identified by police as 62-year-old Clyde Gay of Coushatta, was not injured.

The college is offering counseling services to students.

Louisiana State Police investigated the crash.
