DALLAS (CBS11) – The Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the four women killed in a crash Saturday night as 65-year-old Maria Rodriguez de Vizcarra, her two daughters Raquel Vizcarra, 32, and Mirna Vizcarra, 42, and her sister Maria Morales, 53.
The women were Jehovah’s Witnesses and attended a church just a few blocks from the site of the crash.
Church members said the women were devoted to their faith and spent much of their time going door-to-door in the neighborhoods around Love Field to share their faith.
Dallas police said driver of the pickup, 19-year-old Jose Lule,
along with the three other passengers in the truck will face charges of Failure to Stop and Render Aid. There were beer bottles found in the truck; however, the driver was not intoxicated according to police.
Original story from Sunday 9-6-2015:
Dallas police arrested a driver involved in a crash that killed four women.
Jose Lule, 19, of Mineral Wells is in custody. His bond is set at $40,000.
Police say Lule and three other men were in a truck that collided with the car the four victims were in on Webb Chapel Road at Park Lane late Saturday night.
The driver of the truck attempted to run away from the scene after the crash, but was caught.
The deceased women were 38, 42, 55, and 65.
Their identities have not been made public and it’s unclear if they were related.
Police say it does not appear alcohol was a factor in this crash.
Linus Spiller lives nearby and heard the collision from three blocks away. He says he rushed to the scene to see if he could help.
“It was horrific,” he said. “The two cars were so crunched they looked like one car.”
Spiller, who has lived in the area for 18 years, said accidents along this stretch of Webb Chapel in northwest Dallas are a common occurrence.
“People travel on it like the Autobahn,” he said. “It’s insane. They got to do something about it because it’s too dangerous.”
