Two festivalgoers driving to Bonnaroo Music Festival Wednesday night died in a nine-car pile-up near Murfreesboro, Tennessee, less than an hour from the festival grounds. 

The Tennessean reports that Brandon Wilson, 28, and Deja Morris, 25, from Indiana, were killed in the accident while five others were injured. The accident occurred on Interstate 24 where a big rig failed to yield to traffic just after midnight. It hit numerous vehicles causing two cars to catch fire, while another car exploded before the flames could be extinguished.

The driver of the tractor, Stacey Colvin, 40, has been cited for the accident.
