Binner and Hedrick were declared dead at the scene by Warren County Coroner Doug Huskey.

Hatten, who reportedly carjacked the pickup from Riverwalk Casino, was injured in the crash and taken to Merit Health River Region. He was later transferred to University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, where he was listed in critical condition.

He will face charges of carjacking and two counts of vehicular manslaughter upon his release, and the case will be presented to the next Warren County grand jury, Edwards said.

Hatten is accused of pulling a woman out of her vehicle at Riverwalk Casino and taking her 2007 blue Lincoln MLT pickup and leaving the casino parking area at high rate of speed, according to police reports.
