Adrian Alvarez (18), and Fernando Cuevas, (19), and Jose Ramos (16), were all tragically killed in a violent crash just before midnight on New Yar’s day. In addition, three passengers, and the driver, were seriously injured in the crash.
The accident occurred at the Highway 380 exit along North Loop 288 in Denton. According to police, the teens died in a high-speed car crash when the driver of the car slammed into a traffic barrier along North Loop 288 while trying to elude police. A state trooper began a pursuit of the Ford vehicle the teenagers were occupying after radar showed the vehicle to be going approximately 78 mph. According to Rachel Enriquez, a sister of one of the occupants, the other teenagers urged the driver to slow down, but that the driver insisted if the cop was going to stop him, the cop would have to catch him. Enriquez’ sister Rachel was ejected from the vehicle and landed 15 feet from the car, breaking her leg. She was the only one conscious after the crash.
Toxicology reports are pending. If the driver is found to have been intoxicated during the crash, he could face criminal charges
