He was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the wreck and remained uninjured. The driver of the Hyundai and two juvenile passengers were transported to a hospital with moderate injuries.

A third passenger, an 8-year-old child, died of their injuries at the scene. All the occupants of the Hyundai were wearing seatbelts. The driver of the Ford was also wearing a seatbelt at that time. They also remained uninjured as a result of the accident. No other details are available.
