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...

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...
