Pierce's car hit a truck. The driver of the truck was not injured.

Pierce and his son, eight year-old Dylan, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Pierce's other son, six year-old Ethan, was taken to Taylor Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities say the occupants were wearing their seatbelts and that alcohol was not suspected as a factor in the crash.
