ARLINGTON (NBCDFW) - Two Arlington Lamar High School students and one of their mothers were killed in a crash in East Texas early Tuesday morning, authorities say.

Faith Whittaker (pictured on the left) and Jessica Brown (pictured on the right), both 16, were riding in a Jeep Renegade driven by 36-year-old Chelsey Brewer when the car drifted off the roadway and crashed into a parked tractor-trailer in Lindale about 4:20 a.m. Monday, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Brewer was Whittaker’s mother and the two girls were cousins. The three were returning from a weekend trip to visit other family members in Mississippi, friends said.

In a tweet, Lamar High School said students Faith Whittaker and Jessica Brown "will be missed tremendously."
