BOERNE, Texas — A major car crash closed all eastbound lanes on Interstate 10 near Boerne on Monday afternoon.

The crash happened shortly after 2 p.m. near mile marker 539 on the interstate highway. An SUV driver lost control and over-corrected, causing the vehicle to roll multiple times, Boerne Police said.

A 4-year-old child was killed, and three others -- an infant, a 2-year-old child and an adult female driver -- were taken to University Hospital in San Antonio.

Police said all three children were ejected from the vehicle in the crash and may not have been properly restrained in child safety seats.
