FORT WORTH - Mid-afternoon Tuesday, driver Issac Adams lost control of his vehicle and sped at 80 to 100 miles per hour into the Star Food Mart on Lancaster and Riverside Drive.
Police say Adams was drunk.
The crash pinned mother Sylvia Zazueta under the vehicle. When first responders arrived, she was pronounced dead.
Arriving at the scene, the sight was heart-wrenching. The convenience store wall was smashed in and Adams' truck remained there, the front folded like an accordion.
Adams remains in jail where he faces charges of manslaughter. However, the charges against him don't bar others from seeking justice. Those who've suffered as a result of Adams' negligence can still make a personal injury or wrongful death claim against him. All parties who were hurt in this accident have a right to compensation under Texas law.
