Authorities in north Florida are investigating a three-car crash that killed three people, including a child, and sent several others to the hospital in serious condition.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 19-year-old Mary Trumps appears
to have lost control in her Honda Pilot and crossed the median on Interstate 10, crashing head-on into a Nissan Maxima, killing the driver and passenger.

The Nissan then slid into a Chevy Suburban, killing a 5-year-old and seriously injuring another child and three adults in the vehicle.

Trumps was also seriously injured.

The crash caused traffic to back up on the highway to a three-mile standstill Saturday afternoon in east Leon County.

Sgt. Aaron Stephens of FHP says that when drivers lose control,
it's best not to slam on the breaks but to instead ease off the gas
and not jerk the wheel.
