3-Year-old dies at hospital 1 day after mother killed, sibling injured in wreck

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A young boy died Tuesday from injuries he sustained during a crash that killed his mother and injured one of his siblings the previous day.

Three-year-old Isaac Rowell died at Carolinas Medical Center at 12:42 p.m. Tuesday. His mother, 28-year-old Silje Grayston, died on Monday.

The accident occurred just before 9 a.m. Monday at Independence Boulevard and Fugate Avenue.

Police say Grayston was sitting in a Volvo at the light on Fugate waiting to turn right onto Independence when a Toyota RAV4, being driven by 34-year-old Caw Kam, "suddenly veered from the left lane across four lanes of Independence Blvd. and struck the Volvo in the driver's side."
