2 Teens Dead After 4-Car Crash In Denton County

KRUM (CBSDFW.COM) – Two teenage girls are dead after a four-vehicle crash Thursday night in Denton County. The incident happened at about 7:00 p.m. along U.S. Highway 380, west of Nail Road, just south of Krum.

DPS investigators say 17-year-old Samantha Rogers and 15-year-old Delaney Mancil, both of Alvord, died instantly.

According to Lonny Haschel with the Texas Department of Public Safety, three vehicles – a Dodge pickup truck, a Mercury and a Pontiac — were heading east along the highway. A larger GMC truck was traveling west along the highway.

For reasons that have not yet been determined, the Dodge pickup truck crossed the center line and struck the GMC truck. That GMC truck then lost control, sideswiped the Mercury and then plowed head-on into the Pontiac.

No One else was transported to the hospital and police have not said if any criminal charges will be filed in the case.

    Tell your children you love them every time they leave. Tell your parents you love them every time you leave. At some point and time it will be the last time. Our daughter, Sam, was a star athletic, scholar, awesome cook and she knew Christ.
    Thank you all for the prayers and support at out time of loss.
    Love your children like there may be no tomorrow. There may not be.

This is not goodbye for forever however it is see you again someday when we are taken home to be with our Lord & savior Jesus Christ.

    Certainly a tragedy for all families involved! I must point out the pathetic reporting above. Good reporting always answers the old questions of who, what, when, where and how. From the above article someone please tell me in which vehicle the teens were riding? I assume the Pontiac…good reporting does not leave questions…
