Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 29-Dec-2011
Two teens were killed in a single-vehicle accident near Springtown, Texas, on Wednesday, causing speculation among officials that the driver may have been traveling at unsafe speeds.
Weatherford resident, 18-year-old Joshua James Brown was driving the Dodge pickup truck when he lost control of the vehicle and it went flying into the air. After rolling, the truck smashed into a nearby mobile home and ignited.
Fourteen-year-old Alex Christian, of Aledo, was also killed in the accident. She died after attempting to escape the accident wreckage.
Two other teens were in the vehicle at the time of the rural Texas accident. They were both seriously injured in the car crash.
Halston “Hoss” McCue, 15, was transported with serious injuries to Parkland Hospital in Dallas, via helicopter. Thirteen-year-old Madelyne Mitchell was taken by ambulance to Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth.
Residents were in the mobile home when the truck smashed into it, although, they were able to escape the residence without injury. The mobile home was damaged by fire.
According to police, the rise in the road where the car crash took place is popular among local teens, who sometimes speed up in order to jump their vehicles.
