Amarillo, TX - An early morning wreck in Childress County leaves one person dead.

A van with two adults and three children was traveling west on US 287 just after midnight, when the driver fell asleep and lost control of the vehicle.

The van rolled several times into the ditch, when the three children, none of whom were wearing seat belts, were all ejected from the vehicle.

One five year-old passenger died at the scene.

The other four passengers were taken to the Childress hospital in stable condition.
