CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - A third child has died of injuries from a weekend collision between a freight train and the car in which the children were riding at a South Texas railroad crossing.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says 5-year-old Aubree Galla of Beeville died at Driscoll Children's Hospital in Corpus Christi on Sunday evening.
DPS Sgt. Nathan Brandley says 12-year-old Aden Posada and 8-year-old Jacoby Posada died Saturday morning when they were hurled from car on impact by a Union Pacific train at a rural crossing five miles southeast of Mathis. Brandley said neither boy wore a seatbelt and the girl wasn't seated in a child safety seat.
The boy's father, who was driving, was hospitalized in Corpus Christi with severe injuries.
Mathis is about 35 miles northwest of Corpus Christi.
