The accident happened on Sunday morning around 12:28 pm on the Capitol Expressway near Snell Avenue. A 25 year old woman driving a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu crossed over the center median and collided head on into a 2004 Lexus carrying a family of three.
The 14 year old boy in the Lexus was tragically pronounced dead a short time after the accident at a local hospital. The driver of the Malibu was also killed in the accident, and the parents of the teenage boy remain in the hospital with major injuries.
