SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The mother of three children ejected from a vehicle during a rollover accident in Boerne has been arrested.

Officials said the driver, 27-year-old Alabama resident Kianna Adams, was arrested Thursday and charged with manslaughter, injury to a child causing serious bodily injury and injury to a child causing bodily injury.

The accident happened Monday around 2:15 p.m. on I-10 near mile marker 539 when a SUV lost control and rolled over multiple times.

An infant, a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old were ejected from the vehicle and police said the 4-year-old, identified as Star Adams, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Kianna and the two other children were transported to a hospital for their injuries.
