SAN BENITO — The police department is investigating a one-car crash that led to the deaths of a 53-year-old woman and a 4-year-old child.

The woman and child were traveling with four others in a southbound Ford Expedition when it crashed near the Sam Houston Boulevard exit ramp at about 11:26 a.m. Saturday.

The woman and child died after an ambulance transported them and the other occupants to a hospital.

“The circumstances surrounding the cause of the crash are currently being investigated by the department’s patrol, criminal investigations and crash divisions,” the city said.

Officials were withholding the names of the woman and child “out of respect to the family and members involved,” officials said.

No other information was readily available Monday morning.
