According to a release from the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA), an 8-year-old passed away Saturday afternoon from injuries sustained in a traffic accident on Old Pascagoula Road Friday morning. Four others were also injured in the crash.
The accident involved two vehicles and occurred at 7:35 a.m. Friday about three miles west of Mobile on Old Pascagoula Road.
The two vehicles involved in the crash were a 1992 Buick LeSabre and a 2002 Toyota Sequoia.
According to the ALEA report, there were four people inside the Buick during the crash, including three children with ages ranging from 1 to 10 years of age. The occupants of the Buick were transported to USA Medical Center for treatment, which is where the 8-year-old passed away over the weekend.
