Whitesboro, TX (4/5/2021) – A father and his daughter were killed in a multi-vehicle crash Monday afternoon in Whitesboro.
The accident happened on Highway 56 near Old Sanborn Ranch Road when a dump truck hit the rear of a car, causing it to crash with three other vehicles.
DPS says vehicles headed eastbound were stopped due to a school bus dropping off a student. That’s when a dump truck going over a hill didn’t stop in time and caused a chain-reaction crash with at least five other vehicles.
A man, Detective KC Robinson, 33, and his daughter, 6, were fatally killed after being hit by one of the vehicles.
Another person, 60-year-old Ruben Ramirez was sent to the hospital, where he later died.
The officer’s wife was flown to a nearby hospital, where she remains in critical condition.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led to the accident, and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
