Dallas, TX (10/3/2020) – Two Dallas Baptist University students were killed and three others were injured in a two-vehicle wreck Saturday night.
The crash happened shortly before midnight on Mountain Creek Parkway when a 21-year-old woman headed westbound hit the back of another vehicle.
Two first-year students, Kaitlyn Kotzman, 18, and Karina de la Rosa, were killed. They were both passengers in the car that was hit.
Three people, who were also students at the university, suffered life-threatening injuries. They are now recovering.
Crash investigators will review all factors that may have led up to the accident and police reports will be made available in fourteen days.
According to NTSB, almost half of all two-vehicle crashes were rear-end crashes between 2012 and 2014. In addition, these crashes killed more than 1,700 people each year. Furthermore, these kinds of crashes are ultimately a consequence of distracted driving or following too close behind a vehicle, as reported by the NHTSA. Being hit from behind is why the two passengers were fatally killed. The families of Kotzman and de la Rosa are entitled to wrongful death claims due to the rear-end accident.
