A 5-year-old boy was killed late Wednesday when his mother crashed her sport-utility vehicle in Burnside.
Burnside officer Mike Hill discovered the wreck after seeing the mother crawling along the shoulder of U.S. 27 seeking help, according to a news release.
The woman, 25-year-old Michelle Black of Burnside, was driving south on U.S. 27 when she lost control of her 1996 Toyota 4Runner and struck an embankment, police said.
Three children were in the car. Police did not release their names, including the name of Black's son who died.
