DALLAS (AP) — Three children are dead and two drivers and a teenage passenger are hospitalized after one car slammed broadside into another carrying the children at a western Dallas intersection.
A Dallas police statement says a car driven by a man was westbound on Singleton Boulevard about 5:30 p.m. Monday when a car with a female driver and four children as passengers pulled out from a side street. The man's car slammed into the left side of the second car.
Police Senior Cpl. Melinda Gutierrez says three children, all younger than 13, died shortly thereafter at Children's Medical Center of Dallas, and a 13-year-old was taken to an unspecified hospital in unknown condition. She says both drivers received non-life-threatening injuries.
Investigators suspect excessive speed factored in the crash. Identities are being withheld.
