Dallas Baptist University students die in car crash

Early Saturday morning, a driver swerved off the road and struck a utility pole on a Texas highway killing three students from Dallas Baptist University.

A 2009 Chevy Silverado was heading south on the Mountain Creek Parkway around 3 a.m. when the truck hit the pole, according to police. Before hitting the pole, the truck hit a piece of equipment that was meant to be installed by Mountain Creek Lake.

According to Dallas Morning News, both passengers died at the scene.

The students were identified as Will Smith, of Bullard, Justin Schubert, of Cleburne, and Djordje Sarenac, of Belgrade, Serbia. Dallas Baptist University reached out to the friends and families of the students.

Dallas Baptist University released a statement saying, “Our hearts and prayers are with the families of these students as our University mourns this heartbreaking loss,” the statement said. “We have grief counselors available for the campus community.”
