WOOD CO., Ohio (WCMH) — A six-year-old Columbus boy has died after a serious car crash in Wood County.

It happened around 4:15am Saturday on Interstate 75 near mile marker 170 in Bloom Township. According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, 28-year-old Brittney Jackson, of Columbus, was driving north on I-75 when her 2001 Honda Civic went off the left side of the road. Her car struck a concrete median wall and came to a rest in the left lane.

Officers say that a 10-year-old boy was in the front passenger seat and a 6-year-old boy was in the right rear seat. Both children were taken by Life Fight to St. Vincent Medical Center with serious injuries. The 6-year-old later succumbed to his injuries.

Jackson was taken to Wood County Hospital with minor injuries.  All vehicle occupants were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.
