    A Mesquite family is mourning the loss of their son, Horn High School student Sigfrid Credo, who was killed in a car crash in West Texas on Monday.

    18-year-old Sigfrid Credo was returning home from a trip to Texas Tech with four other students -- including his twin brother Roald Credo.

    “[Sigfrid] was alone,” said mother Ella Credo, sobbing. “He was dying and we were not there. An 18-year-old boy by himself."

    DPS Officials said the driver of the car over-corrected and the vehicle flipped over. Credo was thrown out of the car.

    The Senior Horn High School student was airlifted to a hospital after the accident on U.S. Highway 84 near Roscoe but later died. His brother, Roald Credo, and three other students survived.

    “All I know is that I was always asking for my brother. I was always asking for him,” said Roald.

    Horn High School students say the brothers were known as inseparable.

    As Roald Credo recovered from his scars, his friends never left his side. But his deepest wound is facing the world alone -- because part of him is gone.

    "It didn't feel like it was real because I wouldn’t think anything would separate us,” said Roald.

    The Credos said they believe Sigfrid is looking down at them from a better place.

    “He's my angel right now, I don't have the gift anymore with me because God took it. He gave me an angel” said Ella. “He gave me angel and made sure I don't have to worry about anything anymore."

    Roald and the three other students have been released from the hospital and are recovering.

    There will be a viewing for Sigfrid Credo at Laurel Oaks Funeral Home in Mesquite on Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

    There will be a funeral procession to the Divine Mercy of our Lord Catholic Church at 10:45 a.m. on Saturday
