Two young lives were tragically taken away in a fatal car crash in St. George on October 29.

The SGPD responded to reports of a black sedan veering off Dixie Drive and into a metal power pole. The vehicle was carrying a 36-year-old male driver, and two children.

Anthony and Emilio Romero sadly succumbed to their injuries from the car crash, and their driver/father is still in the hospital with serious injuries.

The SGPD released a statement on their Facebook page that gives the details of the incident.

The SGPD said, “On October 29, 2023 at approximately 5:18 pm, the St George 911 Communications Center received a report of a black sedan that had crashed into a power pole. Witnesses and passerbys recognized that there were two severely injured children in the back seat and immediately took action by breaking windows to get the children out. The children were not breathing when they were removed from the car. These heroic individuals began life saving measures on the children. The two male children, ages 4 and 9, tragically died from their injuries.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the Romero family and confirms the identities of the two children lost in the aftermath of the tragic crash.

The page said, “Hello everyone, in these sad moments The family Romero lost two precious life’s on Oct 29,2023 due to a car accident, the father as well in the ICU recovering from injuries.
