Parents and 2 Baby Girls Killed in High Desert Crash near East Avenue M
PALMDALE, CA (July 3, 2018) – A family of four, including two baby girls, were killed Tuesday morning following a tragic T-bone collision on Sierra Highway near East Avenue M.
According to the authorities, the deadly crash took place at about 10:30 AM. A green Kia sedan, occupied by a couple and their two young daughters, was heading north on Sierra Highway. For unknown reasons, the vehicle lost control and swerved into the oncoming lane. There, the car was T-boned by a vanpool from the Antelope Valley Transit Authority.
The couple, believed to be in their 20s or 30s, and a 1-year-old girl sustained fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene. Another baby girl, also believed to be about a year old, was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The driver, the vanpool’s sole occupant, was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital after suffering non-life-threatening injuries.
It was noted that the infants were secured in child car seats, while the parents were wearing their seatbelts.
An investigation is ongoing to determine what might have caused the sedan driver to lose control of the vehicle. Detectives are considering speed as a possible factor in the collision. Skid marks will be used to determine how fast the car was going when it crossed into oncoming traffic.
