An 8-year-old child was killed in an Eastland County auto accident, Friday, county officials said. Two other people were killed in the crash and two other children were injured when a Cadillac lost control on Interstate 20.

The Cadillac crossed into eastbound lanes of traffic, striking a Ford pickup and a Porche, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety authorities.

Twenty-eight-year-old Jayson Allen Melendez, the driver of the Cadillac, Cameron Allen Melendez, 8 and Tina Lanai Adams, 41, were among those killed in the Texas crash. Six-year-old Grant Adams and 10-year-old Lexie Mercer, who were also riding in the Cadillac, were taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth.
