Crash Sends 5 Children to the Hospital

ITAWAMBA COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI)-A two vehicle wreck sends five children to the hospital. Yesterday afternoon around 4:30 a teen driver traveling east on Highway 178 in Itawamba County attempted to pass an empty log truck on the right side while the semi truck was making a right turn. The teen then crashed into the semi and over turned several times. The teen driver, another teen, and five children were in the overturned car. All were sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A four-year-old however, was ejected the the vehicle and flown to Memphis with life threatening injuries. The children in the car were not wearing seat belts and the four-year-old was not properly restrained.
