Grayson Mayberry, Seth Griner Killed, Landynn Andrews Injured in Car Accident in Franklin County, TX
Franklin County, TX -- February 26, 2023, Grayson Mayberry and Seth Griner were killed and Landynn Andrews was hurt following a car accident.
Investigators said that the incident happened at around 1:30 a.m. along FM 115 outside of Winnsboro. Right now, the cause of the crash is unclear. Mayberry, Griner, and Andrews (all teenagers) were in a pickup when it somehow lost control and crashed off southbound FM 115.
Due to the collision, Mayberry and Griner sustained fatal injuries. Andrews was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. No further information can be confirmed at this time.
Authorities will need to be thorough in looking into what happened here before anyone starts jumping to conclusions. It may seem obvious to say that, but I see people make assumptions after crashes like this all the time.
I've seen plenty of situations where a driver loses control due to something unusual like mechanical issues, a medical emergency, road hazards, a defect, or even poor road maintenance. Yet people tend to see a teenage driver and immediately assume they did something wrong. Is that possible? Of course, but what good does it do a grieving family—especially when those people don't even know what actually happened?
Instead of trying to blame someone, I do my best to remind people that families out there lost their kid. They shouldn't have to see unnecessary comments from members of the public who just want to be the smartest person in the room. It's best to let investigators do their jobs so the evidence can simply speak for itself.
