Grandmother, three children killed West Texas van crash

(Balmorhea-AP) -- Family and friends are mourning the West Texas traffic deaths of a Los Angeles woman and three of her grandchildren.

Four other relatives were injured in last night's van rollover on Interstate Ten near Balmorhea (bal-muh-RAY').

Investigators believe three vans were hauling relatives to Houston for a wedding.

The other two vans weren't involved in the crash.

Killed were 44-year-old Edna Tyars, four-month-old Kamyrne Zaire Lytle, seven-year-old Stephan Tyars and 14-year-old Shereese Tyars.

Their grandfather -- 51-year-old Luther Tyars -- is hospitalized in Odessa in stable condition.

Authorities believe Luther Tyars drove into the median, then overcorrected -- and the van rolled twice.

Three children were treated at Reeves County Hospital.

Of those, 12-year-old Clishawnda Weakley was transferred to a Lubbock hospital, where she's stable.
