Teens Killed, Treyvaun Crawford Injured in Car Accident in Trinity County, TX
Trinity County, TX -- December 24, 2022, two teenagers were killed and Treyvaun Crawford was injured following a single-vehicle accident.
There are few details confirmed about the crash in the news at this time. They say only that the incident happened at around 4:00 a.m. along Highway 94 near Fillmore. Public statements from officials say that 22-year-old Treyvaun Crawford was in a Dodge Grand Caravan along with a 15-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl. That vehicle somehow ran off-road where it ultimately hit a tree and overturned.
Due to the crash, the teenage passengers sustained fatal injuries. Crawford was flown to a hospital for treatment. Beyond this, factors surrounding the crash cannot be confirmed at this time.
Unfortunately, sparse details like this are all too common following a holiday. Writers for local media outlets go on vacation, officers are left handling more work with less people, and as awful as it is, crashes like the one described here often slip through the cracks. Needless to say, a grieving family isn't going to shrug their shoulders and move on. They want answers, and they deserve to get them as soon as possible. They shouldn't have to wait around for answers about the loss of their loved one—that's especially true when the victims are so young.
Have authorities gone back to this crash to get more information they may have missed the first go around? Were they thorough behind the scenes and gave the families satisfactory answers that simply never made it to the public eye? Or, will there need to be more thorough investigations to ensure there are no unanswered questions?
