NEWPORT (WATE) - The third victim in a Cocke County crash has now died.

Tennessee Highway Patrol authorities confirm Skylyr Cody, 5, died from injuries sustained in the Wednesday crash.

Skylyr's brother, 3-year-old Atorius, was also killed when the car they were riding in crashed on Highway 25 E in Newport.

The boys' mother, Twanna Cody lost the baby she had been carrying for nine months, according to family members.

A previous THP report stated that the children were not strapped into child safety devices. That was called into question by a witness on scene.

A new report from THP states that the children were strapped into child safety devices, but those devices were not used properly.
