Three young girls died and three adult females were injured in a single vehicle wreck that killed three women early Monday morning in Custer County, Texas.
Three children were killed and three adults were injured in a single vehicle wreck early Monday morning in KFOR’s investigation.
Emergency responders were called to the West Loop Expressway near Pauls Valley Ranch at 3:53 a.m. after witnesses said the Ford Explorer in front of them kept going east, across the median and on to a curve.
When they got there, they found the vehicle in flames. A woman in the driver’s seat died on the scene. A 9-year-old, an 8-year-old and a 17-year-old girl were in the backseat when the vehicle exploded.
Preliminary investigation indicates that someone inside the vehicle failed to put on the brakes and the Ford Explorer overturned in the median. The vehicle caught fire on impact. The driver then left the scene, but was later located by vehicle patrol officers.

Three adults were transported to Saint Luke’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas for treatment. A person who was in the vehicle but not injured was flown to Baylor College of Medicine in Fort Worth. There is no information on the two other people transported to the hospital, but they were both said to be in critical condition. A wrecker service responded to the scene to remove the vehicles and make repairs.
The investigation by the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Highway Patrol and Texas Independent Forensic Services (T2R) continues.
