Five children killed in SUV crash in East Texas
TYLER, Texas — Investigators say two boys and three girls died when the overloaded SUV they were traveling in crashed in East Texas.
Department of Public Safety Trooper Jean Dark says five other children and two adults were hurt in the rollover Monday near Van, about 70 miles east of Dallas. No other vehicles were involved.
Dark says the GMC envoy was carrying too many passengers. She says the SUV did not have child safety seats and that nine of the children were ejected from the vehicle.
DPS identified the children who died as: 13-year-old Rosvaelia Jaimes; 7-year-old Omar Jaimes; 6-year-old Saideth Acuna; 3-year-old Ulisa Acuna; and 2-year-old Judith Jaimes. DPS says they all came from Marshall.
The names and conditions of the injured were not released early Tuesday.
