BIBB COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -
An Alabama State Troopers report has revealed new details in a fatal Bibb County accident.
A five-year-old girl was killed when a Chevy Blazer overturned Friday, Jan. 10 at Hopewell Church Road and Vernontown Road. Three other adults and three children were injured in the wreck.
According to the report, the driver lost control of the vehicle "while driving with a passenger in her lap." The passenger allegedly sitting in the driver's lap is not the child that died.
The vehicle hit an embankment, rolled and then came to a stop. The report states that the speed limit in the area is 35 mph and the vehicle is estimated to have been traveling at 55 mph at the time of the accident.
Several passengers, including the five-year-old girl, were ejected from the vehicle. Troopers say no one was wearing a seat belt.
The report states distracted driving contributed to the cause of the crash. The driver underwent a blood test but the results will take at least six months to get back. Troopers add that the driver did not have a license.
Troopers have identified the adults in the crash as 34-year-old David Parks, 28-year-old Caitlin Parks and 31-year-old Kathy Jones. Two of the injured children are 9 years old and one is 11 years old.
DCH says that one of the children has been released and another transferred.
