The call came in quickly before 9 a.m. Police say the 11-year-old was sitting in the back of a white Honda with Louisiana plates. 

"All we know is that one vehicle crossed over the path. Why he did, we don't have the foggiest idea," said Lt. Tony Fuqua with the Foley Police Department. 

Two grown-ups, likewise in the Honda, were taken to the clinic. Police, through meetings at the clinic, decided the Honda was voyaging southbound, and the driver veered into the northbound paths and into approaching movement. 

"It shows up something happened inside the vehicle. We don't recognize what happened. We don't know why he went over yet. We are still under scrutiny on that," said Lt. Fuqua. 

Examiners say the following stride relies on upon what they gain from survivors of the accident. 

It's not known whether the travelers from Louisiana were made a beeline for the shoreline for excursion yet as hundreds venture to every part of the Foley Beach Express this mid year It's an update that bustling expressways can be hazardous and some of the time dangerous.
