Four people were killed Sunday morning in a two-car accident in Grant County after one of the vehicles wound up in an irrigation ditch.
Two children and two adults, all in a full-size SUV, all died after their vehicle collided at the intersection of Beverly-Burge Road Southwest and County Road One with a compact hatchback about 9 a.m. Sunday, Grant County Sheriff’s spokesman Kyle Foreman said. The SUV was sent into an irrigation ditch that was full and flowing.
The vehicle traveled about 100 yards down the canal.
The adult male driver of the SUV and his adult female passenger died. Two children were taken to Quincy Valley Medical Center, but they both later died.
The driver of the other vehicle was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
The Grant County Motor Traffic Unit is investigating the cause of the accident, Foreman said.
