A 5-year-old boy and his 7-year-old sister were killed Thursday and two others were injured when an ATV rolled over in Chambers County.

Six kids were riding the four-seated ATV in a pasture along the 1300 block of Hatcherville Road when it rolled and ejected all six passengers. They ranged from 5- to 16 years old.

Five-year-old Sam McCawley died at the scene. Seven-year-old Mercy McCawley was taken by Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital where she later died. Both children were pinned underneath the roll cage of the ATV.

The McCawley children were from Jacksonville, North Carolina and were visiting relatives in Mont Belvieu.

A 9-year-old and 16-year-old were transported to a nearby hospital in stable condition. Two others weren’t hurt.

The Chambers County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash.
