On Thursday, 35 year old Adam Johanson and Elizabeth Johanson along with their four children were driving east on Interstate I-40 near Shamrock, Texas when Elizabeth lost control of the car and slid into the westbound lane hitting another car.
Their eight year old died on the scene and both Adam and Elizabeth died in a nearby hospital.
The other children ages twelve, five and three are in stable condition with family members.
The driver and passenger of the other car were not injured.
All passengers were wearing seat belts.
Slick and snowy roads may have been the cause of the incident.
Adam was a member of the Delta State staff.
A gofundme account has been made to help the family with expenses.
