The storm last night ended in tragedy when a child was killed in a traffic accident in Canyon County. 

 

It happened just before 10 pm last night at the intersection of Homedale Road and Farmway Road in Caldwell.

 

Nothing is worse than a precious child being taken so suddenly and so tragically. This families lives have been changed forever in an instant.

 

The crash involved 32 year old Manuel Vera Gonzalez. He was driving a 200 Ford Winstar van and ran a stop sign. This bad move resulted in him being hit by a Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck head on.

 

One child in the van died at the scene of the crash and two other children received various injuries in the accident.

 

According to KTVB, it's unclear if anyone was wearing a seat belt in the van and the names and ages of the children involved have not been released.

 

 

Our thoughts and prayers are certainly with the family this morning.
