Car Accident Kills Crowell Teen

A tragic accident takes the life of one Texoma teenager and injures three others.

Saturday evening a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old Crowell teenager lost control and flipped several times, injuring everyone inside.

It can only be described as a somber mood, one that can be felt on ever corner of the town.

"It's hard on the community but it's bonded us together, that's one of the good things about our community," said Crowell First Baptist Church Youth Pastor, Seth Manney.

Sunday evening a gathering took place at the church.  Manney was a pastor for three of the teenagers involved in the accident and as a volunteer firefighter he was one of the first men on the scene.

"The car was pretty mangled up, it was a bad scene to be at," said Manney.

According to DPS officials the accident took place on County Road 327.  The 16-year-old driver lost control of the vehicle, swerving and flipping several times before landing in a ditch.

The three surviving girls were air lifted to United Regional.  The fourth passenger 18-year-old Matthew Baker died later that evening at the hospital.

"We've just come to the understanding that we don't have to understand the situation.  We're just expecting God to pull us through."

It's an accident that has numbed the community, but one that will bring them together in a way no one ever expected.

The driver is listed in critical condition, the two other passengers are listed as stable. 

Funeral services are being arranged for Matthew Baker.  It is expected to take place Thursday afternoon.
