According to a report, a juvenile was driving the truck and another juvenile was a passenger. Both were transported to the University of Tennessee Medical Center with serious injuries. The truck reportedly crossed over the yellow line in an attempt to go around a dump truck when they collided head on with a Ford Escape.

Officials said Ruben and Belinda Wilson, who were inside the Ford, were killed in the crash. A child was also in the back seat, but the report does not list their age. Records show they were taken to Children's Hospital by ambulance.

Ruben was the pastor of Three Points Baptist Church.

The church held a special prayer service in honor of the couple Wednesday night at 7 p.m.

Investigators said charges are pending against one of the juveniles for improper passing and reckless driving.
