WINONA (KYTX) - Two people are dead and three others were injured in an accident on interstate 20 near Winona around 5 p.m. Saturday afternoon, according to Smith County Justice of the Peace James Meredith.

DPS has confirmed the two who died are Eddie Allison from Dallas and Kamesha Allison. Their ages are unknown.

Witnesses told CBS 19 that two people riding a motorcycle ran into the back of a semi truck that was stopped in the road due to another accident ahead. 

DPS is working the scene but haven't released any information as to what led to the previous accident, or if the motorcycle riders had time to avoid slamming into the back of the semi.

Two of the other people involved in the accident were transported the hospital, and a third victim that was hurt refused treatment.

Traffic is backed up on I-20 east. If you can find an alternate route, you're urged to do so.

Several fire crews and Smith County sheriffs are also on the scene assisting. The crash is under investigation.
