A teenage brother and sister from Throckmorton are dead after a head-on crash.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said Brianna “Bri” Paige Navarro, 18, and her brother, Charles "Chase" Jesus Navarro, 13, were killed Friday when their 2001 Ford Escape crashed into a big rig. Neither were wearing a seat belt.
The crash happened around 5:40 p.m. on Hwy 183, one mile south of Throckmorton.
State Troopers say Bri veered into oncoming traffic and hit the tractor trailer head-on.
A second passenger in the SUV, 2-year-old Casey Grace Jones, was treated at Throckmorton Memorial Hospital and released.
According to their obituaries, Bri was a senior at Throckmorton High School where she was involved in athletics. Chase was an 8th grader at Throckmorton Junior High School. He enjoyed roping, playing the saxophone, hunting and fishing.
