Bastrop, TX — On October 7, 2018, 30-year-old Yadira Xiomara Paredes Ramirez, her father-in-law Sergio Casarrubia, and two of her young daughters were killed in a two-vehicle collision on Texas Highway 95.
Authorities from the Texas Department of Transportation say that a northbound Dodge Ram pickup truck hydroplaned on TX 95 and collided with Ramirez’s Honda sedan at approximately 11:30 a.m. near Old McDade Road.
Ramirez, her daughters Monica (8) and Daicelin (3) Paredes, and Casarrubia were all killed in the crash. Ramirez’s third daughter, one-year-old Eris Paredes, is in critical condition at Dell Children’s Hospital.
The pickup driver is reportedly in stable condition at an area hospital. Authorities say the pickup was traveling at an unsafe speed along the highway and that a light rain was falling at the time, creating unsafe conditions.
This accident was the deadliest along the 122-mile stretch of TX 95, infamous for its dangerous 65mph speed limit, since the year 2010.
