14-Year-Old Killed In Crash, 3 Other Kids Critical

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 14-year-old boy is dead and three other children are in critical condition after a SUV carrying a family of seven went off the road in Rock County. Police say none of the kids injured in the crash were wearing a seat belt.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a 2000 Dodge Durango was heading west on Interstate 90 near the Beaver Creek exit when it went off the road, into the ditch and hit an embankment of the County Road 6 bridge. The accident occurred around 4 a.m.

The vehicle was sent airborne until the roof hit a pillar of the bridge. The vehicle rolled and came to rest on its wheels.

Fourteen-year-old Daniel Davis was killed in the crash. Nine-year-old Cedric Davis, 7-year-old Seth Davis and 11-year-old Amena Davis are in critical condition. All are from Hubbardston, Mass.

The Minnesota State Patrol is investigating the crash.

    It was 4am. i wonder if the kids were trying to sleep on the floor of the car. It says they were from another state, and i remember doing that as a kid on road trips.

    Stuff like this drives me insane. You only have ONE chance! You mess it up ONE time, enough to kill yourself or someone else, there are no second chances. :( But my goodness, for the ones NOT called home in this tragedy, I pray that the Lord will endow them and their friends with His love and care. They will surly need it.

    God Bless these children and their loved ones. It sounds like a family trip to me and a parent probably fell asleep and this tragic accident occured. Long journeys in cars get very boring and kids hate sleeping with seatbelts on. Please don’t make the family feel any worse than they do, please pray for their healing.
