Bastrop, TX – Four Children Tragically Lose Their Lives In Fatal Crash On TX-21

Bastrop TX (March 30, 2019) Four children were killed in a car crash in Bastrop TX. The tragic accident occurred at 9 p.m on March 29, 2019. State Highway TX- 21, at Quarter Horse Loop, was the scene of the accident.

When responders arrived at the scene of the accident, the four children were deceased in the passenger seats of the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was immediately transported to  Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas and remains in a coma. His relation to the children is currently unknown at this time.

After further investigation, surveillance footage obtained from a gun store showed that the vehicle carrying the children was waiting for traffic to clear before turning left onto TX-21. Another vehicle traveling 58 mph crashed into the vehicle carrying the children. Neither the driver or passenger of the second vehicle were injured but authorities suspect distractions such as cellphones to be the cause of the accident.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to the families and friends of the children who lost their lives in this accident.  Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this difficult time and the other injured parties at this difficult time.
