New information is released in a fatal accident involving three Denver City teachers. The Brownfield DPS office say a charge of criminally intent homicide has been filed. Criminally intent homicide is a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in jail for each count. DPS officers are still investigating the accident, more charges could come depending on the outcome.

Initial DPS reports indicate Guadalupe Medina ran a stop sign in Yoakum County Friday morning. He hit and killed 29-year-old Veronica Flores, 37-year-old Marina Natividad and 47-year-old Rosie Garza. Medina was driving an H&M Dirt Contractors company truck. The Yoakum County District Attorney's office hasn't filed charges pending results of the final DPS report.

One of the victim's family members has contacted an attorney. H&M has an attorney as well, who says a lawsuit hasn't been filed yet, but he expects one. The attorney says the family members can file a wrongful death or survival act lawsuit.
