DALLAS (AP) – Relatives of three youths killed in a West Texas car crash have planned a service in Dallas.
The funeral was scheduled Friday for siblings 12-year-old Brenda Morales and 11-year-old Demarco Morales, plus their 18-year-old cousin Jassmine Alferez. All were from Garland.
Investigators say the youngsters were visiting their grandfather last Sunday in the El Paso area when their vehicle was hit by a suspected drunken driver. The grandfather and another adult in the family’s car also died.
El Paso County Jail records show Alberto Coronado was held Friday on five counts of intoxicated manslaughter. His bond has been set at $1.8 million.
Relatives say the children and other family members had gone to El Paso for a wedding.
