About the Dallas Crash

According to Fox News, a Chevrolet Impala was speeding down a Dallas, Texas roadway on late Sunday.

The Impala was driven by 20-year-old Jonathan Lang who lost control of the vehicle after the car’s back passenger-side tire hit a curb. The vehicle then slid across three lanes before hitting a tree in the median.

The Impala contained five other passengers, two of whom were sisters, identified as Quatia Irving, 21, and Keneesha Bradford, 23. The other three passengers were high school students identified as 16-year-old Cedric Johnson, 15-year-old Kentron Haskins, and 15-year-old Trey Woodberry who played football at Justin F. Kimball High School. All six occupants were pronounced dead as a result of the car accident.  

Darius Morgan, a student at Kimball High School, said of his teammates “People that always made us laugh and smile and brighten up our day … we aren't going to have that anymore”. The Dallas school district said it would provide grief counselors to the student and staff in a statement to the public.
