Dallas, TX – Child Killed and 2 Injured in Car Crash on Lake June Rd
Dallas, TX (May 25, 2019) On the evening of May 25th, a fatal car collision happened at the intersection of Lake June Road and Rain Forest Drive. An orange Dodge Challenger, a gray Dodge Charger, and a blue Ford Mustang were all drag racing east on Lake June Road when the Challenger crashed into a black Chevrolet Impala that was making a left turn on Rain Forest Drive.
When emergency crews arrived, they found that a 9-year-old girl had been ejected from the Chevrolet and died instantly at the scene. Another child in the backseat sustained critical injuries and was rushed to the Children’s Medical Center for immediate treatment. A passenger in the front seat also sustained critical injuries and was taken to the closest hospital for treatment.
The police are still investigating but they arrested the driver of the Challenger. Even though the other two drivers sped off, the police found them and will be charging them as well.
We would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family who lost their child in this crash. Our thoughts are with them and the other critically injured child and passenger as we pray for their full recoveries.
Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Whenever vehicles drag race on regular streets, they are driving above the speed limit and completely disregarding traffic laws. If drivers are drag racing at night, there’s a high chance that they’re driving under the influence. Texas laws permit drivers from participating in drag racing, and if they’re caught doing so and harm others in the process, they will face serious charges and fines.
