Virginia State Police are investigating a weekend crash that killed a five-year-old boy in Nelson County.
According to Trooper R. Sachno III, a 1994 Saturn SL was driving east on Route 665 around 8:23 p.m. on Sunday, March 24th. The driver lost control less than a mile east of the road's intersection with Route 29. The car then ran off the left side of the road, hit a tree, then flipped into a creek.
EMTs took five-year-old Jeremiah C. Clark, of Nellysford, the driver, 18-year-old Mercedes Toliver-Carrington, of Amherst, and three other passengers to UVA Medical Center.
State Police say Clark died from his injuries on Monday.
Trooper Sachno found everyone in the car was wearing a seatbelt, and alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
The investigation is ongoing.
The masked ISIS militant who appears to be shown beheading American journalist Steve Sotloff spoke on video before killing him, saying, “just as your missiles continue to strike our people our knife will continue to strike the necks of your people."
The Islamic State militant group released a video Tuesday that it claimed shows the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff.
