ALEDO, TX (06/10/2015) — 68-year-old Donald Daniel and 14-year-old Hunter Corzine were killed, and two others were injured on Wednesday in a multi-vehicle accident along I-20 in Parker County, Texas.
Authorities have confirmed that former Aledo ISD superintendent Don Daniel, 68, and his grandson Hunter Corzine, 14 (both from Weatherford), were killed on Wednesday in a multi-vehicle accident on Interstate 20 near the FM 1187 exit in Aledo, Texas.
According to reports, shortly after 1:30 p.m. a black Nissan pickup truck driven by Donald Daniel was traveling westbound on I-20 when it veered out of the travel lanes onto the left shoulder, over the cable barrier, and into the eastbound lanes of I-20.
Daniel’s pickup truck struck an eastbound Chevrolet Suburban head-on. Daniel’s pickup was then struck a second time, head-on, by an 18-wheeler. A third collision occurred after the Chevrolet Suburban was rear-ended by a Buick passenger car.
Sgt. Lonny Haschel, a DPS spokesman, stated that Daniel and Corzine both died at the scene. The male driver of the Suburban was flown via air ambulance (CareFlite) to Texas Health Harris Hospital in Fort Worth with serious injuries.
The female driver of the Buick was also transported via ambulance to Texas Health Resources Harris Hospital; she had a 4-year-old passenger with her in a booster seat who reportedly wasn’t hurt. The driver of the semi was uninjured.
Police have been unable to determine what caused Daniel to lose control of his vehicle; an investigation is pending.
