A 6-year-old Sandusky boy was killed in a car crash in Perkins Township, Ohio, on Wednesday afternoon. Several other victims were injured. According to ABC 5 News, the accident occurred on Erie County’s Strub Road at around 3:40 in the afternoon.

A Toyota Corolla, driven by a 59-year-old woman, was heading east along the road, until a Volkswagen Jetta pulled out of a Burger King parking lot and tried to turn left onto the road. The two vehicles collided, severely injuring the front seat passenger in the Jetta and the 6-year-old boy in the backseat. The boy was transported to a local hospital before being taken to Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. He passed away early Thursday morning.

A 5-year-old girl riding next to the boy in the Jetta walked away from the accident uninjured, while the driver of the Corolla only suffered minor injuries.

No charges will be filed in connection with the case until the the Ohio State Highway Patrol completes the investigation of the crash.
