Hundreds mourn 3 Ga brothers killed in crash

Posted: Updated:

GARDEN CITY, Ga. (AP) - Hundreds of people turned out in a southeast Georgia town to mourn three brothers who died in a fiery wreck in Effingham County.

Mourners filled a funeral home in Garden City on Friday night to pay their respects for 18-year-old Wesley Mulligan, 16-year-old Garrett Mulligan and 3-year-old Eli Hickox.

The three brothers died in a crash on Nov. 21. They were on their way to pick up a sister at school when their truck struck a gasoline tanker and burned.

The brothers' remains were displayed in a single box that sat atop a four-wheeler. A cousin of the three, Brittany Hansen, says the whole family is in shock over their deaths.

No charges were filed in the accident, and the driver of the tanker truck wasn't injured.
