Truck hits family at West Memphis funeral home

(WMC-TV) – A truck crashed into a West Memphis Funeral home Thursday, sending a family, including two children, to the hospital.

Chopper 5 captured exclusive images of the truck after the crash that happened at the Roller Citizens Funeral home located at 201 Pine Street in West Memphis, Arkansas.

Authorities in West Memphis said that the truck hit a mother, father and their two children just outside the funeral home.  The driver of that truck experienced some sort of medical emergency that caused her to lose control of the vehicle.

"You have to imagine these families were grieving already, and we had three different families grieving, then this took place, so it was real chaotic in the beginning," said Jeff Jones with the West Memphis Fire Department.

A 3-year-old and a 5-year-old were sent to LeBonheur Children's Hospital.  The youngest child was airlifted in critical condition, while the other was transported via ambulance.

The parents of the two children and one other adult are being treated at The MED.  Their conditions are unknown at this time.
