A woman and child are dead after walking away from a car crash only to be struck by another vehicle on the east side of Mesquite, as reported by Fox 4 News.
The accident occurred around 11 p.m. on February 28, on an Interstate 20 bridge near Farm Road 741.
Jennifer Young’s BMW collided with a Nissan Sentra before her car stalled in the middle of the freeway. The other motorist’s car became entangled in a steel cable barrier.
Young, 30, and her 3-year-old son survived the initial accident. However, when they exited their vehicle and tried to get off of the highway, a Nissan Altima that could not stop in time struck the BMW and both victims.
A Freightliner truck hit the BMW as well.
The mother and child were pronounced dead at the scene.
No one else was injured in the accidents.
