HOUSTON, TX- A single vehicle accident on I-45 involving four children left 1 person dead and 4 hospitalized on March 12th, KTRK reports.
It is believed that around 10:30 at night, a vehicle lost control on I-45 near Veteran’s Memorial Drive and hit a concrete wall on the side of the interstate. After hitting the structure, the vehicle proceeded to rollover several times, ejecting three people.
There were a total of seven people in the car. Besides four children, there were three adults. None of the children were in a car seat as the only car seat in the Honda was in the trunk.
The people who were thrown from the vehicle were one of the adults and two of the children. The adult was severely injured. The 1-year-old girl died and the 3-year-old boy was also severely injured.
The driver and the mother of the four children were fine, and the other two children, aged 10 and 5, had small injuries.
