LIBERTY GROVE - A Woodland man and his two children were killed early Sunday morning in a one-vehicle accident.

At approximately 2:34 a.m., ALEA Communications - Jacksonville Post was notified by Randolph County E-911 of a single-vehicle accident on Highway 48 near County Road 95 in the Liberty Grove area.

The vehicle appeared to be traveling at a high rate of speed while negotiating a curve. The vehicle ran off the left side of the roadway striking a tree head on. The collision caused the vehicle to catch fire and completely burn.
