Young boy uninjured in a car accident that kills two
An eight-year-old boy escaped injuries in a severe car accident that killed his grandmother as well as another driver.
The accident happened in Marshalltown, Iowa around 5 p.m. on Friday night. A 46-year-old Des Moines man failed to stop at a stop sign and crashed into a vehicle being driven by a 58-year-old Marshalltown woman. The young boy was the woman’s grandson and he was a passenger in her vehicle.
The boy’s grandmother passed away at the scene of the accident and the Des Moines man was taken to a local hospital in the area where he died shortly later.
Our condolences go out to the victim’s family and friends during this tragic time.
