The child was rushed to Delray Medical Center. The other seven victims were transported to the JFK Medical Center, police officials and FHP reported.

The accident occurred at Venetian Drive and Hypoluxo Road when a 2013 Honda Accord crashed into a pickup truck and then into a Toyota. This led to the shutting down of all westbound lanes of Hypoluxo Road west of Congress Avenue. Police reported the lanes have been reopened.

A Boynton Beach police spokeswoman also added that the crash is still under investigation and encourages eyewitnesses of the accident to come forward.

The police have decided not to disclose the child’s identity as well as the identities of the other victims.

FHP said, the crash did not lead to any deaths. The victims are currently being attended to and one of them has recently been released from the hospital.

The mother of the 11-year-old, said they were on their way home in her Honda Accord when they were hit by a speeding Pontiac while traveling through an intersection, the Post reports.

The crash left her son unharmed, still asleep in the backseat but moments later, a third car pulled up, and police say a woman inside swerve into the Honda, fatally wounding the boy, who later died in the hospital.
