13-Year-Old Killed After Tractor-Trailer T-Bones Car

Police say the 13-year-old girls were best friends

A crash in Lewisville Saturday morning killed a 13-year-old girl and injured three others, police say.

At 11:28 a.m. Saturday, officers were called to a crash at the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 544 and State Highway 121.

When they arrived they found that a tractor-trailer had T-boned a passenger vehicle killing 13-year-old Alexandra Lynch of Bowie.

All occupants of the passenger vehicle were transported to area hospitals including the driver, a 37-year-old Sanger woman, her 13-year-old daughter and her 9-year-old son.

The driver's daughter is in very critical condition, the 9-year-old son is in critical, but stable, condition and the mother is in an unknown condition as of Sunday, police said.

According to police, Lynch was the driver's daughter's "best friend" and was sitting behind the front passenger side of the car at the time of the collision. 

Capt. Dan Rochelle, with the Lewisville Police Department, said one of the vehicles ran a red light at the intersection, but was still unaware of who was at fault. 

Both the driver of the tractor-trailer and the mother will have their blood tested which is routine with fatality crashes, according to Rochelle. However, neither party was suspected of being intoxicated during the time of the collision.
