Three Southern University marching band members were killed when a semi-truck crashed into their car as they were changing a flat tire on the side of a Louisiana highway Tuesday night.

The tragedy occurred after the students — Tyan Williams, 19, Dylan Young, 21 and Broderick Moore, 19 — stopped a 1999 Jeep Laredo on the shoulder of northbound I-49 in Natchitoches to fix the flat, according to Louisiana State Police.

While they were working to replace the tire, a 1997 Freightliner drifted onto the shoulder and slammed into the left side of the Jeep, cops said.

The three students, members of Southern University’s renowned Human Jukebox Marching Band, were declared dead at the scene.

The semi-truck driver, identified by police as 62-year-old Clyde Gay of Coushatta, suffered no injuries. Police said that a toxicology report is pending as they continue to investigate.
