Port St. Lucie Police are investigating a fatal roll-over crash where an 11-year-old boy was thrown from the car and killed.

Around 1:15 a.m. Carl Ingraham, 43, of Port St. Lucie was driving his family of four north on SE Southbend Blvd. In the car were Ingraham's wife Kelli, 37, and his two step sons Thomas Voellm, 17, and Jack Voellm, 11.
