Mother, children die in head-on collision


DAVENPORT (KWWL)-- A mother and her two daughters died, when their vehicle collided with van on their way home from a softball tournament Saturday night.

Donna Mitchell, along with 11-year old Susan, and 13-year old Kourtni, were killed.

Police say Mitchell's vehicle went off the shoulder, and then may have overcorrected, crossing the center line and hitting an oncoming van head-on on Kimberly Road in Davenport.

Six other people from those two vehicles were taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Police say it appears Mitchell was driving the speed limit and wasn't driving recklessly. The cause of the crash is under investigation.
