The Dallas Police Department responded to the scene of an accident Friday night at Lake June Road in Dallas.
According to reports, the accident occurred at around 7:30 p.m. after one of the vehicles that was racing crashed against another vehicle with passengers inside. There were three vehicles that were racing eastbound on Lake June Road: a Dodge Challenger, a Dodge Charger, and a Ford Mustang. In the midst of the race, a Chevy Impala attempting to turn westbound on Lake June Road was hit by the Dodge Challenger.
As the Chevy Impala was spinning, 9-year-old Olivia Mendez, a passenger in the vehicle, was ejected from the vehicle. Olivia Mendez was pronounced dead at the hospital, and another young individual was rushed to the hospital in critical conditions.
Police stated chargers will be filed, and the investigation is still ongoing.
As a car accident attorney, I know how difficult the aftermath of a wreck like this can be. I wish the victims and their families a speedy recovery.
