Both the truck and car went out of control and through the center divider, where the truck plowed into a church van, driven by Christine Jacob, 39, causing it to flip several times and eject some of the eleven children on board. The FHP said, it is unknown if any were wearing seatbelts.

The truck then struck another truck driven by Nicholas Freeman, 49, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, who was also traveling south. Both trucks and George’s car caught fire and a fifth vehicle hit at least one of the ejected van passengers.

George and Christine suffered serious injuries, as did the five surviving children, who were also ages 9 to 14. They remain hospitalized, as did Nicholas Freeman.

Authorities identified the dead children as Bethany Mouton, Richard Kant, and Clinton White, between the ages of 11-17. Anyone with relevant information concerning the crash is asked to contact Florida Highway Patrol.

A Palm Beach County driver suffered horrible injuries as well as other injuries to his spine, neck and right arm in a terrible crash during a weekend’s car race at Palm Beach County Raceway.

The 33-year-old was involved in a high-speed accident with a 41-year-old on the tri-oval with his Nelson Peters Motorsports Dallara-Honda.  The car went flying through the air and into the outside safety barrier, sending his car into a series of violent spins as he came back down the track and into the path of oncoming drivers.

A statement from the Car race officials said that the 33-year old was “awake and alert”, which led to widespread relief across the paddock after the race was stopped for him to be extracted from his cockpit which was all that was left by the wreck and the track to be cleaned up and repaired.

FHP have now revealed the driver suffered injuries to his spine, neck and right arm. He also sustained a pulmonary contusion.

The other driver involved in the crash was also taken to a hospital in Palm Beach County with non-life threatening injuries.
