A deadly collision in Hale County has now claimed the life of a child. Bianca Manzanales, 8, died from her injuries on Tuesday. Her mother, and mother's boyfriend died at the scene.

"Preliminary investigation shows that we had two (semi tractor trailers) stopped for a vehicle in a construction area. (The pickup) came up behind and struck one of the trucks in the rear," Trooper Corey Kernell said.

According to DPS, the rollover happened around 5:15pm Monday, about ten miles west of Plainview on Highway 70. Investigators believe the driver, Heath Lunsford, of Amherst, failed to slow down in that construction zone. Lunsford, 20, and his passenger, Melissa Manzanales, 27, died at the scene. Manzanales, a resident of Earth, was thrown from the truck and struck a parked semi.

Arianna Manzanales, 5, is in good condition at Covenant in Plainview. Their brother, Joe, 7, was treated and released.

No one in the semis was injured.
