17-year-old female from Azle dies from injuries sustained in crash last Sunday

Last Sunday afternoon, a 17-year-old female was seriously injured in a crash near the 800 block of Flat Rock Road outside of Azle. She was transported by CareFlite air ambulance to JPS, where she remained in the ICU.

She passed away this morning at the hospital.

Details of the crash have not been released at this time, although we have reached out to DPS troopers for more information.

The victim has been identified as a 17-year-old female from Azle. As with all fatalities, we will not be publishing her identity out of respect and privacy for the family.

Her mother released a statement on Facebook saying her daughter was an organ donor and will be giving the “gift of life” to others in her passing.
