Deadly crash investigation continues in Los Fresnos
A fatal crash claimed the lives of a grandmother and two of her grandchildren as their mother watched medical personnel try to save them.
It happened on Wednesday near Highway 100 in Los Fresnos.
Dorothy Sanchez only knew 6 year old Reynaldo Alvarado and 2 year old Ariel Castillo for a short time, but they impacted each other quickly.
Her husband grew up with their mother Larissa. It was more like a family than a friendship.
On Wednesday, on what was supposed to be an exciting day, that family was torn apart.
Investigators say a blown out tire caused an SUV to slam into the family's vehicle, killing their grandmother Maria Zamora and later claiming the lives of Reynaldo and Ariel.
