A mother and her son died after they were ejected from their vehicle early Saturday, KFDA-TV reported.

The report says 31-year-old Amanda Beatriz Rosales from Spearman was on her cellphone when she ran off the road going around a curve five miles southwest of Sunray. Four people were in the Ford F-150 pickup. Rosales over-corrected to the left and started to skid, causing the truck to roll several times and ejecting three people. Rosales’ 8-year-old son also was killed. Armando Mendoza, 34, from Spearman and a 3-year-old also were in the truck but had non-life threatening injuries. They were treated at an area hospital. Mendoza was the only person who was seat-belted properly.

KFDA-TV says DPS is investigating the accident.
