Milton, W.Va. (AP) -- Police have identified four people killed in a three-vehicle wreck on Interstate 64 near Milton.

The victims included a family from Plant, Fla. the Cabell County Sheriff's Office identified them Friday as 45-year-old Wayne Lawrence, his wife, 43-year-old Ginger Lawrence and their daughter, 2-year-old Kelsi Lawrence.

Forty-three-year-old Christopher Rodgers of Ironton, Ohio, also was killed in the Wednesday accident.

Eighteen-year-old Christopher Grizzell of West Hamlin was injured.

Police say Grizzell was attempting to move his car to the highway's side because of mechanical failure when a car driven by Rodgers rear-ended the vehicle.

Both westbound vehicles crossed the median. Rodger's car hit the eastbound tractor-trailer head-on and the 18-wheeler caught fire.

    This is just proof that people need to pay more attention to what is going on around them on the roadways. I work for the Courtesy Patrol and I can personal say that people don't pay enough attention to what is goin on in front of them. They are more worried about their cell phones, GPS devices hanging from their windsheilds or their kids tv systems. I don't know how many times I have been stopped on I-77 at night time in the dark with my yellow light bar lighting up the night and people still either refuse to get over in the other lane or just about hit my truck when passing by. If only people would use a little more caution when driving and slow down some, we wouldn't have such terrible accidents.

    It's a sad story. The scene still looks terrible.
