The Department of Public Safety tells NewsChannel 11 that two teens were killed, and seven others were injured early Saturday morning when a pick-up flipped three times just north of O'Donnell. The driver, 14-year-old Bobbi Brewer was pronounced dead at the scene. DPS did not have an address for Brewer. Authorities also pronounced 14-year-old April Lam of Tahoka dead at the scene.
Seven other teens were injured. DPS tells us they are: Jasmine Cano, 14 of O'Donnell, Jared Calvio, 15 of Tahoka, Sierra Rosalas, 13 of Tahoka, Joel Ortigon of Lamesa, Simon Reyna, 18 of O'Donnell, Joshua Garcia, 17 of Lamesa, and Anastacia Zepada, 15 of O'Donnell. Their conditions were not available.
The group was headed north on Doak Street, just north of O'Donnell in a Toyota pick-up around 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Investigators say Brewer had been drinking and lost control. The truck hit the bar ditch, and rolled three and a quarter times, coming to rest on the passenger side.
This accident remains under investigation. DPS tells us none of the teens were wearing a seatbelt.
