A three-year-old boy was killed and another three-year-old was critically injured in a minivan crash on a Texas ranch owned by the polygamist sect led by Warren Jeffs.

Another three-year-old suffered minor injuries. All three boys have the last name Jeffs but it's unclear if the boys are related to Jeffs.

Warren Jeffs has been arrested on charges of forcing a teenage girl to enter a spiritual marriage with an older man. His attorney says it's a case of religious persecution.

Authorities say the minivan the boys were riding in hit a boulder while traveling on a gravel road. The boys were not wearing seat belts but no charges are expected.
