6 students injured after reckless driving

Seven high school students were involved in a two-car accident that put six of them in the hospital. The seventh was able to leave the crash scene in the custody of his or her parents. The other six were taken by emergency crews to Texas Harris Methodist Hospital.

Though exact names and ages have not been released for all of the students, reports do indicate that the students all went to high school together and were all 16, 17, or 18 years old.

At the time of the crash, the students were actually participating in school-related events. Cleburne High School was going to have its homecoming game, and they have an annual bonfire. The students had piled into two pickup trucks to go get wood for that bonfire.

While they were driving, though, they were -- as the students themselves put it -- "horse playing." It appears that one truck swerved into the oncoming lanes to pass the other truck, even though it was a no-passing zone. It then served back into the right lane, but the truck it had just passed hit the back of it.

Both trucks went skidding off the road after the crash, and one of them slammed into a concrete culvert. This sent it rolling through a fence, though it did roll back up on its wheels before it came to a stop.

For parents, knowing that their children are on the road can be stressful, even when those parents feel their children are personally safe drivers. If a young person is injured by another child's reckless driving, parents may be able to seek financial compensation in Texas.
