Six young girls were killed in a car crash in Tennessee on Sunday in a devastating tragedy that saw one vehicle completely flip over. Two adults and six kids were in the five-seater red Toyota Camry which hit a shoulder barrier at around 2am local time, emergency services said. The car flipped over, throwing all six girls and another woman out of the car.

Emergency crews from Robertson and Cheatham counties in the state rushed to the scene to assist.

The kids were found dead, while the woman was in critical condition and treated at the scene before being airlifted to hospital.

The man suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital in Nashville.

A Robertson County Emergency Medical Services statement read: “A total of four Advanced Life Support ambulances responded to this scene and one helicopter/air ambulance.

“Initial arriving units worked quickly to search for, assess and triage the total nine patients involved.”

While officials are yet to release the names of the victims, Brent Dyer, chief of the county’s emergency management services office, said the kids were aged between one and 18 years old.

A black pickup truck that was also at the scene appeared to have crashed into a concrete barrier on the shoulder of the road underneath Jack Teasley Road bridge.
