5 Killed in SUV/Hummer Crash
Early Sunday morning, an SUV and a Hummer H-3 collided on U.S. 287 near the Oklahoma border, killing everyone involved.
One SUV, which the Department of Public Safety say was driven by 38 year old Spencer Earl Risinger Jr., was driving down the 4 lane highway and then made a u-turn, going the wrong way down the same lane of the highway. Risinger was from Wichita Falls.
The auto accident caused both vehicles to explode in flames. The victims of the other vehicle was a family from Colorado, Robert L. Behn, his wife, Lisa, and their two teenage children, Jordan, 18, and Morgan, 15. The family was driving back from a baseball tournament that had taken place in Dallas.
One witness reports Risinger's car driving recklessly at high speeds and swerving. Police are investigating whether alcohol played a factor in the crash. It is currently unknown whether any type of wrongful death suit will be filed.
