Amarillo, TX (11/21/2020) – A woman is dead and four others were injured in a three-vehicle wreck Saturday evening.
The accident happened on State Highway 152 around 6:30 p.m. A Dodge Caravan was stopped on SH 152 facing east waiting for traffic to pass. A Ford Mustang headed eastbound on SH 152 crashed into the rear of the Caravan due to the 16-year-old driver being distracted. The impact caused the Caravan to go into the westbound lane and collide with a Buick Lacerne headed west on SH 152.
The crash ended with the Buick crashing into a utility pole, the Caravan resting in a north barrow ditch, and the Mustang catching fire.
The driver of the Caravan, 76-year-old Sharon Williams, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, where she later died on Sunday.
Three passengers in the Caravan – a 13-year-old, a 9-year-old, and a 10-year-old – were taken to the hospital for their injuries.
The driver of the Buick, 56-year-old Gay Forsha, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
The 16-year-old was not injured.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
