Childress County, Texas (April 17, 2021) – A 5-year-old was killed last week Tuesday in a multi-vehicle crash in Childress County, according to the Texas DPS.

The fatal crash happened on April 6, at the intersection of FM 2530 and FM 268.

DPS said an SUV was traveling westbound on FM 2530 approaching the intersection while a Ford F-350 was traveling northbound on FM 268.

The Ford disregarded the stop sign and crashed into the SUV.

A third vehicle was also involved in the crash.

The SUV driver was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A 5-year-old in the SUV was taken to the hospital where they later died. Both the driver and the child were not restrained at the time of the crash.

The Ford driver was uninjured in the crash. The driver of the third vehicle was also not injured in the crash.

The DPS is investigating the crash.

“When a person has suffered a grave personal injury in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, the most overwhelming emotion they feel is a sense of injustice. They often ask how such a life-altering event could have happened to them,” attorney Joel A. Gordon said. “The next question usually is, who can help me?” Mr. Gordon added.

A legal advocate can represent an injury victim or the family of a deceased victim. The attorney will file a claim on behalf of the victim and will have the responsibility of citing existing codes, laws, or statutes which were violated.
