Siblings killed in drunk driving crash

A brother and sister have died after a drunk driver struck their grandparents' vehicle late last week in Lexington. The boy, who was 7 years-old, died shortly after the accident. His 10 year-old sister, died yesterday of her injuries.

The siblings, along with their 9 year-old sister, were on their way home from church when a 37 year-old man struck the car carrying them. The 9 year-old girl survived and is expected to recover. Both grandparent sustained minor injuries and were released from the hospital.
