Texas DPS identifies Chillicothe ISD student killed in crash
CHILLICOTHE, Texas (KAUZ) - A Chillicothe ISD student-athlete was killed and another student is in critical condition after a car crash, according to Chillicothe ISD Superintendent Tony Martinez.
Texas DPS identified 16-year-old Lexi Jo Flynn as the person who died in the crash. Flynn’s younger sister was reportedly the other occupant and she was flown to a Lubbock hospital in serious condition.
The girls were on their way to school at the time of the crash, according to Sgt. Dan Buesing of the Texas Department of Public Safety.
The crash happened when Flynn’s vehicle failed to yield and pulled out in front of another car, according to DPS. The driver of the other car was reportedly not injured.
“It is one of the hardest situations that any school district can ever go through,” Martinez said in a Facebook post.
All Chillicothe ISD sports events have been canceled for this week.
Texas DPS initially said an 18-wheeler was involved in this crash - they have since updated their report.
