Young Girl Killed In A Single-Vehicle Accident Near Adrian
Nothing in the world could be worse than having to face a child’s loss in an accident. There isn’t anything that anyone can say or do that can ever give grieving parents enough comfort or lessen the pain.
No doubt, the family members of a 12-year-old girl killed in a single-vehicle accident outside of Adrian are going through such a devastating loss. The Pampa News reports that the fatal crash happened in the early morning hours on Saturday, October 24, along Interstate 40.
The Texas Department of Public Safety reports that at approximately 5:30 a.m., a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe was heading eastbound on Interstate 40 when the driver lost control on a curve along the highway. The driver has been identified as 26-year-old Narcisco Serafin Jr. of Dallas.
DPS investigators say that Serafin was traveling at a high rate of speed when he struck a median. Serafin over-corrected his vehicle while attempting to get back onto the road and lost control in a rollover crash.
The SUV rolled multiple times before coming to rest in the westbound lanes of the Interstate on the driver’s side of the vehicle.
Emergency crews responded to the scene of the accident. Oldham County Justice of the Peace Kristy O’Malley pronounced a 12-year-old female child from San Bernardino, California, dead at the scene. Her identity was not released at the time of the report.
Two additional passengers in the vehicle, Patricia Serafin-Cruz of San Bernardino, California, and Narcisco Serafin, Sr. of Dallas, were taken to Amarillo Northwest Texas Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
Narcisco Serafin Jr. was also taken to Amarillo Northwest Texas Hospital and has suffered serious injuries.
Officials have not said if impairment may have been a factor in the fatal crash. The accident is currently under investigation.
