Crash Video Files: Eastland County, Texas: Cameron Mitchell, Jr. (7) Killed In Accident On Interstate 20; Injured Victims Include Levance Smith, Amalia Acorta Salinas, And Ivanna Lewis

One child was killed and 3 victims were injured in this two-vehicle crash.

Date: Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Time: About 5:45 in the evening

City / County / State: Eastland County, Texas

Address: I-20 West, near Mile Marker 358

Victims Killed:

1. Cameron Mitchell, Jr. was 7. He lived in Fort Worth.

Victims Injured:

1. Levance Smith is 35 and from San Antonio. He was injured but said to be in stable condition.

2. Ivanna Lewis is 34 and from Fort Worth. She was said to be in critical condition.

3. Amalia Acorta Salinas is 55 and from Fort Worth. She was injured but also in stable condition.

Cause:

There is some inconsistencies in the reports on this accident. But one thing that is certain is that police believe that either Levance Smith or Amalia Acorta Salinas veered off of the road, entered the median, and then crossed over into the wrong lane of traffic. This caused a collision with the other vehicle.

According to KTXS, the roads were wet at the time due to rain. This could affect whether the driver who lost control is charged with any crimes. If the weather is what made the person lose control, then the next question will be to ask if he or she was driving too fast for those road conditions.

Criminal Charges?

There are no charges at this time.
