PHILADELPHIA, MS -- Funeral plans are set for five young siblings and an adult who died when a sport utility vehicle driven by the children's father careened off a Mississippi road and into a creek.

All of the victims of Saturday's crash near Philadelphia were members of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

Tribe spokeswoman Misty Dreifuss says a funeral for the children, who ranged from 18 months to 9 years old, will be held Wednesday at a tribal building in Choctaw.

A funeral for 37-year-old Diane Chickaway, a friend of the children's family, will be held Thursday at a church in Leake County.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell says the children's father remained hospitalized Sunday. Their mother and Chickaway's husband also survived.
