CEDAR PARK, Texas (KXAN) — Police in Cedar Park responded to a two-vehicle crash that killed two children Wednesday afternoon.

Police say the crash involving a Dodge Ram pickup truck and a Nissan Rouge SUV happened just before 4 p.m. at the corner of West Whitestone Boulevard (FM 1431) and Walton Way. The area where the crash happened is in front of the Walmart.

Both of the children who died, 1-year-old Daniel Chaudhary and 8-year-old Elijah Chaudhary, were in the SUV. The 31-year-old woman driving the SUV was taken to the hospital in critical condition. Cedar Park police say the 8-year-old boy was a student at Winkley Elementary School.

The driver of the pickup truck along with their passenger were treated for minor injuries.

Investigators are piecing together what led to the collision, and ask anyone with information to call 512-260-4834.

The Leander Independent School District released a statement and the principal of Winkley Elementary School sent a letter home to parents regarding Elijah’s death. The school says there will be additional resources and counseling support for staff and students “for as long as necessary.”
