One man, two juveniles killed in crash near Corsicana
On Thursday evening at around 8:40pm, multiple emergency responders were called to a single-vehicle crash on Farm to Marker Road 709 near Retreat, Texas, just south of Corsicana.
A preliminary investigation of the scene reveals a vehicle was traveling north on FM 709 when the driver drifted off the side of the road and hit a culvert, causing the vehicle to go airborne. The vehicle rolled multiple times, ejecting the driver and two rear passengers.
The driver has been identified as a 35-year-old man from Corsicana. Two juvenile passengers have been identified as a 14-year-old male and 16-year-old female. All three were pronounced deceased.
A third juvenile passenger was transported to a Dallas hospital. He was the only occupant wearing a seatbelt.
Corsicana ISD has identified the two deceased juveniles as their students. Counselors will be at the school on Monday.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
