A father and his 14-year-old daughter from Odessa, Texas died in a crash on Oct. 3, police said.
It happened at West Loop 338 near Highway 385 early Thursday morning, Oct. 3, when emergency crews responded to the scene of a devastating collision.
Jesse Vasquez and his 14-year-old daughter Brianna both were killed instantly in the collision, CBS7 reported.
The surviving four family members including his wife and three other children were seriously injured and airlifted to a hospital in Lubbock.
According to Vasquez’s brother, Jaime Vasquez, the entire Vasquez-Lujan family of six was on the way to school together before being struck head-on by another vehicle near Highway 385.
Jaime said that the mother, Lorena, has collapsed lungs and a broken ribs. She is scheduled to have a second surgery on Friday.
Aitza, 11, is in a back and leg brace after going through surgery while Brissa, 6, has a broken arm, and the youngest, 3-year-old Noheli has a broken arm and had to get screws in her leg.
The funeral arrangements are being worked out by the family but they want to hold off on the services so that the rest of the Vasquez-Lujan family can get closure.
Vasquez’s family has a GoFundMe page to help pay for their funeral costs and ongoing medical bills.
DPS troopers are not releasing any details on the crash at this time and said that the investigation is ongoing.
