Multi-car accidents can have devastating outcomes, especially when children are involved. That is the case of a recent accident where an 11-year-old girl was killed and two additional children were listed in critical condition in a multi-vehicle accident on Highway 380 that happened on Saturday.
According to Denton Police, the four-vehicle accident happened at approximately 6:30 p.m. at Highway 380 and Mayhill Road. Helicopters were called to the scene of the crash to transport three children and two adults to an area hospital.
Two of the children, an 8-year-old boy and a 4-year-old boy were taken to Children’s Hospital in Dallas and were listed in critical condition. The third child, an 11-year-old girl, was transported to Denton Regional Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
The conditions and extent of the injuries to an adult male and an adult female were not released. They were both transferred to Denton Regional Medical Center.
The cause of the fatal accident is still currently under investigation and no charges have yet been filed.
