POLK COUNTY, Fla. - A two-vehicle crash has left three family members dead and two children in critical condition Tuesday.
Investigators said the car was dragged approximately 400 feet by the semitrailer.
Sims, his wife Sharonda, 28, and their 5-year-old son Savion were killed in the crash.
Two of their daughters, 7-year-old Ariel and 2-year-old Kitty were airlifted to Arnold Palmer Hospital in critical condition.
Their 3-month-old daughter Arienne was taken by ambulance to Lake Regional Medical Center but did not appear to have injuries.
According to sheriff's investigators, the family was returning from a shopping trip to Orlando when the crash occurred.
Investigators said the baby was properly restrained in her child car seat, but no one else in the car was wearing a seat belt.
According to investigators, Sims had a suspended driver's license for failure to pay traffic fines.
The driver of the semitrailer was not injured. No charges are pending in the accident, according to investigators.
