A second person has died in hospital from a July 1st collision.
12-year-old Lizitta Moreno of Haltom City, Texas, was riding inside a 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer going southbound on I-35 when the SUV drove off the road to the right, overcorrected, drove off the road to the left, overcorrected again, and rolled 3½ times, landing on its top—according to an OHP Troop F report.
Lizitta was taken by EagleMed to Parkland Hospital in Dallas in critical condition with internal and external injuries.
The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office reported that Lizitta died just after 6:00 p.m. July 6th due to her injuries.
14-year-old Erick Moreno of Haltom City, Texas, the driver of the Chevy, was taken by Southern Oklahoma Ambulance Service to Mercy Memorial Hospital in Ardmore. He was reportedly treated and released.
37-year-old Marco Moreno of Ferris, Texas, another passenger inside the Chevy, was also taken by EagleMed to Parkland Hospital in Dallas in critical condition with internal and external injuries.
