Three people including two Arlington Lamar High School students were killed in a crash in Lindale on Tuesday October 16, 2018, according to NBC DFW.
Details of the DFW auto accident
Two students, both 16-years-old, and a mother of one of the children were killed when the vehicle they were riding, a Jeep Renegade driven by a 36-year-old woman, drifted off the road before crashing into a parked 18-wheeler on the shoulder of the westbound lanes of Interstate 20 in Lindale, according to responding authorities. The two students died at the scene of the 18 wheeler accident in DFW. The driver of the Jeep, who was also a mother of one of the students, was taken to the hospital where she later died as a result of the personal injuries she sustained from the Dallas truck accident. The driver of the 18-wheeler that the Jeep hit, was asleep in his vehicle at the time. The truck accident in Dallas is still under review.
