PRINCE GEORGE – A family is left in mourning as the holiday season approaches after a five-year-old boy that was one of three people injured in a single-vehicle crash in the county has died from his injuries.

Prince George Police confirmed Seth Krenicky’s death Tuesday morning following a crash at the intersection of Jolly Road and Second Court late Saturday night.

According to authorities, just before 11 p.m. Saturday, a 2002 four-door Pontiac was traveling southbound along Jolly Road and ran off the road to the left, striking a culvert pipe.

When police arrived, they found a five-year-old child unresponsive and a nine-year-old with serious injuries.

Officers on scene performed CPR on the child until rescue crews could arrive and continue life-saving efforts.

The five-year-old child was taken to Southside Regional Medical Center via ambulance for treatment while the nine-year-old was rushed to VCU Medical Center in Richmond via MedFlight.

The driver of the car was taken to Southside Regional Medical Center, as well, with non-life-threatening injuries.

The condition of the driver and the nine-year-old child was not revealed by police.

The department has confirmed they “are working closely with the Prince George County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office” and “criminal charges related to the driver of the vehicle are forthcoming.”

Sunday, Prince George Police said speed and alcohol are believed to have been factors in the now-deadly crash.

The name of the driver has not been provided by authorities.
