A head-on crash on a St. Joseph city street late Friday night sent
a car into a water-filled ditch, killing a 22-year-old mother and her two young
children. A third child died later at a local hospital.

St. Joseph police report the crash occurred in the 2900 block
of Pear Street around 11 o’clock Friday night.

Police say the two cars collided. One of the cars rolled over
into the ditch, filled with water from recent rains. The woman and two of her
children, ages one and four, were pronounced dead at the scene. The third
child, a three-year-old, died today at the hospital.

Two people in the other car suffered non-life-threatening
injuries, according to police.

The wreck remains under investigation.
