Three Children Killed in Car Rollover Accident

Car accidents in St. Louis that involve children are especially devastating. Even worse, most can be prevented, and the loss of these innocent lives is tragic. The Bellville News-Democrat recently reported on their website about a serious, fatal accident that took the lives of three children.

The accident occurred just prior to 9:30 pm. There were five people in the vehicle, including an eleven-year-old, a ten-year-old, and a three-year-old – none were wearing their seat belts – and all three children died in the collision. Fortunately, another eleven-year-old boy and the driver survived, but they sustained serious injuries.

The crash occurred when the driver lost control of the SUV as it was exiting the highway. It rolled several times but no other vehicles were involved in the accident. At the time of the article, there was still much to be determined. Police were not sure what caused the accident to happen. They were also uncertain as to whether or not the survivors were wearing their seat belts.
