The 4-year-old daughter and mother-in-law of a man running for County House 68 was killed in a collision and fled in North Texas.
Craig Carter posted on Facebook that his daughter Lux and mother-in-law Rose Morgan were killed in a “terrible car accident”
His 3-year-old son Rex is at the Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth.
“He’s fighting, and we humbly ask you,” Carter said. “My wife and I felt devastated but we feel relieved to know that they are now with our Lord Jesus.”
Northlake police – between Denton and Fort Worth – said Kendrick Damon Collins collided with Morgan’s car, pushed it into a concrete curb and rolled over several times.
Collins was arrested and charged with two counts of death and one accident involving serious bodily injury. His bond was set at $ 600,000.
Carter’s wife said that due to the economic downturn caused by COVID, they do not have health insurance on Rex. So all costs for his medical care will be paid out of his pocket.
Lega Morgan and Carter said: “We ask you to please donate what you can, and please pray for us, especially Rex.”
House District 68 includes Fisher, Kent, King, Haskell, Stonewall and Thornmorton Counties.
