Authorities say two people have been killed in a crash in southeast Missouri.

KFVS-TV reports that the single-vehicle crash was reported around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday on Interstate 57 in Mississippi County.

Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt. Clark Parrott says southbound lanes of the interstate were closed temporarily so a helicopter could land and take a child who survived to Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. The interstate reopened just before 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Authorities are notifying the relatives of the victims and didn’t immediately release their names.
