Reportedly, the driver of a 1999 Buick was backing out of his parking space when he lost control of the vehicle due to an alleged mechanical failure. The car spun out of its spot in reverse, crashing into the entrance of the market where a woman and three children where exiting. All three children were hit by the car, the twelve year old died at a local hospital, a nine year old girl was airlifted to the hospital, and a four year old boy was treated and released. The driver of the Buick has been questioned, but no charges have been filed.
