    A 911 address mix-up may possibly be to blame for the death of six-year-old Ian Uro. Uro was pronounced dead on arrival at 9:45 a.m. when he was taken to the emergency room of the Beth Israel Medical Center.

    One student is dead and three others are hurt after an East Texas high school sport utility vehicle veered off a rural road and flipped.

    The crash happened about 2:40 p.m. Thursday on Farm Road 17, just north of Interstate 20 in Van Zandt County, about 55 miles east of Dallas.

    Trooper Jean Dark of the Texas Department of Public Safety said the teacher driving the vehicle apparently overcorrected when a front wheel slipped off the pavement and veered across and off the road.

    The vehicle flipped, ejecting 15-year-old Skylar Carpenter. Three other teenagers were hurt.

    Six Quitman High School students and a teacher were in the vehicle.

    The Quitman Independent School District said the students were on their way to a National FAA Organization event in San Antonio.
