2 brothers aged six and seven have actually passed away after the older kid supported the wheel of a car at their grandparents’ home and crashed into a tree.
The seven-year-old, with his brother or sister in among the traveler seats, drove the vehicle through a field and then on to a back road – taking a trip east – near Kansas City, Missouri.
The Missouri Highway Patrol stated in its report that the 2007 Buick LaCrosse struck a roadway barrier and a guy-wire (a tensioned cable television utilized to support a free-stranding structure), prior to reversing and crashing into a tree.
The vehicle arrived on its roofing system and captured fire, and the brothers – whose identities have actually not been launched – were noticable dead at the scene.
Sergeant Andy Bell, from the highway patrol, stated: “It’s pretty unique, to say the least, and devastating.”
He added that speed “had to have been a contributing factor” for the car to have actually turned in the manner in which it did, however an examination into the occurrence is still continuous.
The highway patrol and the Jackson County Constable’s Department are looking into what occurred and how the young boys came into possession of the vehicle.
The location where the crash occurred, east of Kansas City, is not covered by a regional authority.
