Investigators say the driver of a semi truck could face criminal charges after an accident left two people dead Friday night.
14-year-old Ashton Herrera of Plainview and 24-year-old Malachi Fonseca of Olton were killed after a semi truck slammed into their car in Northwest Floyd County Friday night.
DPS tells us the semi failed to yield the right-of-way to a Mustang at FM 788 and FM 2301 around 7:30 p.m. Friday.
Herrera's father, 34-year-old Eugene Herrera, was transported to Covenant Medical Center. He has since been released.
The semi truck driver, John Lafuente of Plainview, was issued a citation for failing to yield the right of way but he could now face criminal charges.
DPS troopers say Ashton Herrera was the only one not wearing a seat belt.
