Two Children Killed in South Dallas Car Accident
Vehicles are perhaps one of the greatest inventions accredited to mankind, especially when you need to be somewhere quickly. Just because you’re itching to reach your destination doesn’t mean you’re allowed to speed and break the law. The Metroplex area is often jam-packed with traffic and endlessly busy, which can make speeding a highly dangerous action to you and other motorists. However, despite the evident dangers, drivers in Dallas continue to speed and cause catastrophic damage to unsuspecting victims.

Reckless Actions, Fatal Results
According to a Dallas news source, a 23-year-old man is facing a vehicular manslaughter charge after his role in a car accident that claimed the lives of two children. Authorities revealed the man was driving an SUV at high speed eastbound on U.S. Highway 175 near Pine Street when he crashed into a vehicle carrying a family of five. Two of the vehicle’s passengers, a 12 or 13-year-old boy and a 13-month-old were ejected upon impact. The boy died at the scene and the baby died after being transported to Children’s Medical Center of Dallas.
A spokesman for the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department said the children’s parents and another child were treated for mild injuries. The 23-year-old, who was previously convicted of theft and burglary, was taken to the hospital and later transported to the Dallas County Jail.
