6th Person Dies from Bowie Crash that Killed 5 Children

A sixth person has died from a car crash in Bowie, Maryland, this month that claimed the lives of five children.

Cornell Simon, 23, of Oxon Hill, was taken off life support Monday, his family told WRC-TV (Channel 4).

Simon was the front passenger in a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica driven by Dominique R. Taylor, 32, along Route 301 on Feb. 2 when the vehicle veered off the highway, struck several trees and spun into a snow-covered field.

The five children inside — Damari Makale Herald, 15; Zion Elijah Beard, 14; London Anayah Dixon, 8; Rickelle Lashawn Ricks, 6; and Paris Aliza Dixon, 5 — were ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Taylor, the mother of Paris and London, and Simon were the only two wearing seat belts at the time of the crash, authorities said.

Services for the five children were held Saturday.
