Missouri has gone into mourning.

On May 30th, a devastating car crash took place at Blue Mills and Miller, just outside of Kansas City.

Missouri Highway Patrol officers arrived quickly at the scene...

But, sadly, the 2 boys inside the car couldn't be saved.

But, what makes this accident even more heartbreaking is the age of those involved.

It was confirmed that the 2 passengers, who are yet to be officially named to the press, were only 6 and 7-years-old.

It is completely shocking.

Police believe that the 7-year-old was behind the wheel at the time of the crash, and his younger brother was in the passenger seat. Neither were wearing seatbelts.

The car is believed to have been driven across a field...

Before joining a county road, KMOV reported. But at some point, the 7-year-old lost control of the vehicle and swerved it into the side of the road.

The car is then believed to have hit a guardrail...

And somehow became airborne.

The car landed onto the ground...

But it was then sent back up into the air, hitting an electrical wire and landing on its roof, according to KHSB.

The car then burst into flames, trapping the children inside.

It really is the most horrifying tragedy.

Sheriff Forté shared several photos of the crash scene...

Which was roped off with caution tape and surrounded by ambulances and police vehicles. He captioned his post: "MSHP investigating double fatality accident at Blue Mills and Miller (unincorporated area of Jackson County) involving two children. MSHP will provide updates."

A spokesperson for the Missouri Highway Patrol spoke out about the accident.

"It's pretty unique, to say the least, and devastating," Sgt. Andy Bell said.

But everyone is asking the same thing...

How on earth were 2 children of such a young age able to drive a car completely unattended?

Well, it is believed that, while left unattended...

The boys had stolen the keys to their grandmother's car.

They had somehow managed to unlock the car, start it, and drive it away...

All while their poor, unsuspecting grandmother was in the house.

The grief in which their family must be going through is unimaginable...

And many people have been taking to social media to share their condolences.

Other grandparents have been sending their own messages...

And expressing how these mistakes can happen to anyone.

But others haven't been too sympathetic.

Many social media users have been quick to slam whoever was caring for the boys that day, and pointed out that kids need to be "watched like a hawk."

Some are placing all the blame upon the parents...

Evidently, these people haven't had children before.

But, sadly, accidents like these are too easy to occur.
