A twenty one year old mother identified as Brandi Blue of Azle, TX was killed when the truck she was a passenger in collided with a passenger van. The car accident occurred on Interstate 35W in Northlake at 4:00 a.m. Sunday. The truck Ms. Blue was riding in, for reasons yet unknown, was traveling north in the southbound lanes of traffic at the time of the car wreck. The truck driver’s medical condition is unknown at this time. Fortunately, none of the occupants of the van were seriously injured. A third car was also involved in the car wreck, but the occupants of that car were also not seriously injured.
Again, while it is yet unknown why the truck was traveling in the wrong lane of traffic, it will be surprising if drunk driving did not play a role in this tragedy. Considering that the van had seven occupants and the third car had three, this tragedy could have been much worse. Yet, there certainly can be no greater tragedy for the family of Ms. Blue.
