Major Wreck





Still looking for details, but it looks like we have three dead and two injured from a wreck on 2123 (at CR 3673) this morning.

If anyone knows anything. post away.

Edit: Fox 4 is the first one to cover the story. It seems five teenagers (?) were in one car that went off the road and struck two trees. Three in the front seat died. Two girls in the back seat were careflighted. No names yet.

Edit: Have an unconfirmed report of the dead being two males and one female.

Edit: Some names have appeared in the comments. But nothing has been confirmed.

Edit: A commenter noted that the Star Telegram now has the story up. "The dead were identified as Ryan Lowe, 17, of Boyd, the driver; Michael Fresch, 16, of North Richland Hills; and Morgan Moss, 14, of Boyd."

Edit: The Messenger has a paragraph about it in the Update.

The only name given as to the driver who was killed was Ryan Lowe, 17, of Boyd...who I believe went to Paradise HS. The two girls who survived are Priscilla Hatcher, 15, of North Richland Hills and Paige Owens, 15, of Keller. No word on the other two who were killed.

Fort Worth Star Telegram is listing the dead as Ryan Lowe, aged 17, of Boyd, Michael Fresch, 16, of North Richland Hills, and Morgan Moss, 14, of Boyd. Two survivors are Paige Owens, 15, of Keller who has a broken neck and Priscilla Hatcher, 15, of North Richland Hills who has couts and broken bones. Both are in critical condition.

My thoughts go out to the families. I have come over that hill a little too fast myself a couple of times. Luckily it was during the day and I was not under the influence.

2123 is becoming a death trap just driving the narrow road - then trying to get on 114 is certainly difficult. This particular accident may have had nothing to do with the condition of the roads, but more to do with the condition of the drivers......but, the road is terrible........

...stand by for more problems in this area......

...why doesn't the Messenger give more attention to the horrific roads in this county.......?

.does anybody have an answer to that one?

who cares about what the messenger puts in the paper about roads ... why in the F%^$# where these little kids allowed out at that time of night --- and drinkiing on top of it all? i hope those parents suffer forever.

7:55, why blame the roads? Not counting any experiences you may have had that were the result of others driving badly, you have never, ever had a "horrific" experience on a Wise County road when you were 1.) unimpaired, undistracted and paying attention ahead of you and to road signs, 2.) driving a well maintained vehicle, 3.)driving at or below posted speed and at a speed that was safe given the road, traction or visibility conditions. Period. You just never have. Roads just do not jump up and kill people. Narrow? slow down. Bad bump in the road? See it in time. No shoulder? Don't drive off the road. Hill ahead? Be careful. Sharp curve? Slow down. On and on.

Anonymous said...

I agree about the roads in this county. 70 mph on a 2 line highway with no shoulder and a driveway over every hill is ridiculous. I'm talking about FM 51 South of town. They did reduce part of it to 60 recently after a bad wreck by Aspen Aire but it's still 70 all the way to 114 and you know what 70 means to most people...75 or 80.

Gentry corner is a bad spot on 2123 (among many) - the entire stretch of road is narrow and has many blind curves.

More could be done. A "dangerous curve" sign might help, in addition to the press letting folks know which farm to market roads are the worst for safety. Tell the public where these places are, in addition to giving stats on loss of life. Keep putting up crosses where these death occured. Those are attention getters!

It is so sad about those teens. Imagine the pain of their families.

11:35PM.....What are you talking about....let me guess you might be one of those parents that think you have a complete handle on where your kids are every minute of the day and know exactly what they are doing every minute of the day....?! These parents will suffer for the rest of their lives. They will agonize on how they might've done better. I hope and pray I never know how they are feeling.
PLEASE grow a heart!

Ryan Lowe was a wonderful young man...he was my daugters boyfriend...he died doing nothing more than what i venture to bet you and i have done (more than once)...many, many people are suffering today because of a dumb mistake...11:35, i am glad your life has been error free, i hope your first mistake (and someday it will come) finds you dead along the road also...the rest of you, hug your kids and do your best...although thats not always good enough...

Mommy and Daddy gave the keys to a 2007 (nice truck) to him with no idea of what was next, Gentry Corner will always be there. For as long as I have been raised in this county it will still be named Gentry Corner at 4:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m.

To 11:35...
GEEEEEZZZZE!
Let me get this straight, WHEN you screw up YOU want the people who love you to "suffer forever" and YOU want to "suffer forever" when those whom you love screw up. That can be the ONLY explanation why you would wish such a thing on the parents of the children who were killed and injured in the wreck unless you are nothing more than a hate filled sack of flesh wrapped filth. So WHICH is it? I would truly like to know.

Incidentally, I only THOUGHT three weeks ago the comments on The Blog had reached the the depths of douchebaggery but YOU with YOUR comment managed to set a new low. Congratulations, you NOW have something to claim as a PERSONAL accomplishment.

i dont know where my kids are every minute of the day, but i do at 3:50 a.m.


...and a better upbringing and perhaps these kids would had made better judgements other than drinking booze at 3:40 in the morning.

Anonymous said...

Accidents happen at 4 am or bright day light. Kids can drink either of those times also. Michael was one of my patients at his orthodontists and never left the office without giving every one of us a hug. Drinking doesn't make you a bad person, or a stupid person. It is very unfortunate, but I don't think any time is a good time to point fingers. May God bless you at every curve you take!

Anonymous said...

Ok, 11:35 when I read your comment my mouth fell open in disbelief, that someone could be SO HEARTLESS! These parents just lost thier children forever so trust me...they will suffer forever! Do you know the families? Do you know without a doubt those kids were ALLOWED to drive around drinking (if they were) at 4 in the morning? I am a parent and I can assure I do NOT allow my kids out at 4 in the morning, however I can not say without a doubt that once I say good night and I am asleep that my kids stay put in the house. NO parent can know for sure unless you sit up all night. Do you? I snuck out as a teenager..my parents never had a clue until I told them when I was older. By the grace of GOD my parents didn't have to get that knock on the door in the middle of the night. I really feel sorry for you because some day you will experience a tragedy and I hope to God that someone treats you the way you have treated these parents, because what goes around comes around...and it ALWAYS does.

Anonymous said...

10:17 is right. And as usual the narrow minds jump up to beat down anybody who speaks an uncomfortable truth here.

And yes I think it is reasonable that a parent be expected to be absolutely certain that 14-16 year old kids are not out at those hours. And if you have to stay up all night to know for sure you did a crummy job of parenting the first 13 years.

11:35 what if what if the fact is there three children who lost there lives and shatted many many more.the should have could have might have really dont help there family at a time like this.and if you dont have something good to say why dont you just shut up.even after your commet i hope this never happen to you because it aparent worth nightmare.i cant even inmagine.

Wake up parents of "good kids." You have a responsibility to train your kids to avoid stupid choices. Somehow, the parents of kids form several different communities allowed their mid-teenagers to roam around Wise County at 4am after drinking some amount of alcohol (and who knows what else). It may be too late for these parents but the rest of ya'll - WAKE UP!

Anonymous said...

11:35...Think of what you are doing and saying. This is not the time, nor is it EVER, for you to get on your high horse and blame the parents for this tragic accident. YOU don't know all the details. YOU don't know what went on that night. YOU have no right to point fingers at ANYBODY.
Ever had a teen daughter or son? If not, I'll let you in on a little secret...Teenagers REBEL. I'm sure 99% percent of kids go through that stage, some in different ways than others, but everyone knows how hard it can be to handle teens until they get over that phase. You try to pull them closer, and yet they pull farther away. They lie. They sneak around. They don't call when they are supposed to. They miss curfew. I'm not only talking about the "bad ones". I've known kids who had "ideal parents". PTA...take them to church every Sunday...supportive of all their school activities. They had the perfect upbringing...and yet the more their parents tried to keep them "safe", the worse it got. Being too protective of your kids can have the same effect. That's when they feel the need to lie to their parents, instead.
So, tell me. Have YOU found the perfect way to raise a child? Has YOUR child never made any mistakes? Have YOU never made any mistakes?

I'm speaking not as an angry parent...but as an angry TEEN. One who's life will never be the same. I knew both of the boys. One well enough that he has been practically a brother to me my whole life. His parents...my second parents. They are excellent, respectable, compassionate people who cared the world about their kids. This has been the hardest thing I have ever had to endure, and I don't know when it will ever stop hurting. I've been searching the web, trying to find solace in every bit of information I could find about the accident. It brings a little bit of comfort to my life, knowing that this is much bigger than I could ever imagine and that I'm not alone in mourning.

And I find THIS. For those of you who want change for these dangerous roads...thank you. For those of you who have been affected, directly or indirectly, from this, know that you are not alone. I'm here. We're all here. For those of you who DARE to wish such terrible things upon these parents who have already had to deal with stuff you can't even IMAGINE...You are in my thoughts, because I hope YOU never have to plan for your 17 or 14 year old child's funeral.

You break my heart. I didn't know any of the kids, but any reasonable person knows that it could happen to anyone. You said you were searchng the web for solace. Rely on God and his wonderful book of encouragment the bible. Your post hit home with me, I am one of those parents that has held on maybe to tightly to my kids. I am doing better, but I have to rely on prayer to let go of them. Know that many people are praying for all affected by this tragic event. God Bless you all!

Annie Jokely said...

I can't even count the times my friends and I could have had the same fate on that road, driving when we shouldn't have. We knew those roads really well, and it still could have happened to any of us, and at least I'll admit it. Damn near everyone I know has driven those roads late at night after 1..2..3..4...5..6... too many. Unbelievable that these accidents don't happen more often. AND IT DAMN SURE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN MY PARENT'S FAULT if it had happened. I knew how to get beer without my parents knowing when I was 14 years old. You hide shit like that from your parents. I am so sick of people blaming parents for everything - teenagers know they are not legally allowed to drink until they are 21 and everyone in this country knows it's illegal to drink and drive.

It doesn't make it any less of a tragedy - this is terrible and I hope their other friends out there will learn from this. It can happen to you - it's hard to believe when your young. I hope their spirits will live on to help guide their other friends to better decisions.

11:35 - you're an ass.

Anonymous said...

Annie - you are so on target. Parents who think their kids never drink, or speed in their cars, or do both, are in the twilight zone. All we can do is talk to our kids about those kinds of dangers, watch them go out the door, pray and sweat until they are safely at home in their beds.

A child having a wreck is every parent's worst nightmare. We should do all we can as parents to educate our children to the dangers, inform the highway officials of the horrific roads and then pray - do lots of that.

And we should all be in thought and prayer for those precious families who lost these wonderful children and for those kids who are still in the hospital with serious injuries.

It could happen to any of us.

.... even to the pompous 11:35 and 1:45 a. m. (so you've never speeded?.....give us all a break)

You may have the star athelete, A honor roll student, active in youth group, prom queen and best overall kid...I was that kid! I snuck out all the time. Thanks to my God I am still alive. My parents thought they knew where I was all the time. Just because they didn't, doesn't make them bad parents. Parents can preach all they want, but kids are going to do what they want to do. They all know not to sneak out, not drink, not smoke, no sex blah blah blah. THEY WILL DO IT ANYWAY. Just because these kids were out at 4 am doesn't make them bad kids. And just so all of you know, there was NO alcohol involved, I know the parents of one kid. It can happen any time of the day, anything can. And for all of you pointing fingers, put yourself in that parents shoe. Would you want some ass on the internet pointing a finger at you and calling you a bad parent?

Everyone of these people did not deserve thisand now i have two friends going to suffer with this and have this haunt them for the rest of their lives. And i also have two friends who are now dead and we'll all miss them dearly. I hope that people will learn from this. That our oives are too precious and can be taken within an instant. Priscilla i love you get better soon. And Paige I have extreme faith that you'll make it to be fully healthy again.

landon helzer, you sure sound like an attention whore. what good does it do for you to post your deepest feelings about two people on a blog that they don't even read? you're just like the dumbass people who say they're praying for folks, they need to shut the hell up and just pray, they don't need to announce that they're praying for someone. announcing you care about someone or something doesn't make you sound like you're a caring person it makes you sound fake and like an attention whore.

get off the internet and do your praying.

I got this in my e-mail from Cook Childrens Hospital where I work.

The staff in the NICU experienced a double tragedy this weekend. A case manager and a Nurse lost their sons. NICU is Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. These two women save tiny children every day. They have given their professional lives for other peoples children. They work odd hours and holidays. They are kind and loving to the patients and to the families.

Now 11:35. You're such a big shot. How many lives have you saved? How many times have you sat with desperate mothers and fathers giving them comfort? How many times have you cried for other mothers? How many times have you gone home at night and cried and cried in the shower so no one would hear you because you lost a patient?

That's what I thought.

Anonymous said...

WOW! I am not 11:35.

We have people on here that want to blame the roadway for this? PRICELESS. LOL
Hey clueless ones, you can't blame anyone or anything but those kids for drinking, driving, and traveling way too fast and the parents for not having a better hold on their kids.

As a teen, I was lucky I didn't die, kill my friends or vice versa by pulling the same kinda stunt these kids did. Parents should stop and think. As an adult, I realize that my parents should have been a lot harder on me instead of letting me do what I wanted to.

4:41 - there are always lots of factors involved in a tragic wreck. Drive down 2123 some time, then get back on this blog and give us your feedback. If you meet a rock truck, don't depend on the shoulder. There aren't any.

Those of us who are complaining about this horrific farm to market road drive it every day. It is narrow, full of dangerous curves and at night is just horrible. If the state would at least widen the shoulders that would help.

It won't bring back those precious kids who died and are still recovering in the hospital.

It is just a bad bad road. Are you listening BILL NELSON?

Anonymous said...

4:58 From the look of that truck excessive speed wouldn't be a factor, would it? Oh, and alcohol definately had nothing to do with it.

5:31 - the factors for the deaths of those children are there. That cannot be CHANGED.

But this horrible road can be changed and a few lives might be saved.

11:35 - Are you serious? You don't even know what the families and friends of these teens are going through. Wow. Your lack of any compassion at all is insane.

One of the teens killed was basically like a brother to me. We grew up together. Another was a good friend. Both were good vry good guys. But all teens make mistakes, as many others have said. Their parents; the most loving parents a child could have. They cared about them both sooo much. They always made them call everywhere they went, and told them where were. Even that night they checked up on them. They talked to them just an hour before the crash! But teens rebel! I rebel againt my parents. I'm sure every other teen has as well. So don't even blame this on the parents.

I know they must have been flying around that turn. They had to have been. But those roads are still really dangerous, going fast or not. The curve is right over a hill. You don't see it until you are on it.

Anonymous said...

Responsibility. It seems to me that that simple commodity was missing from the participants in this event. Let's quit blaming the road or the government and ask for the person behind the wheel, those who chose to ride in the truck and the adults who are supposed to provide direction. Again - Responsibility.

Cody said...

You anonymous people make me sick. My name is CODY DUTY and I've got balls. You want to rant and rave about these parents saying that they're bad and they don't know where these kids are. You make me sick.
P.S.
Half of you people that write in blogs with the anonymous display names can't spell. So, maybe if you spent less time ragging on a family that lost loved ones and more time with a dicktionary, you might be better off.(Notice, dictionary is spelled wrong). Just in case you didn't notice. You make me sick people.

Anonymous said...

I completely understand that alcohol could possibly have played a role in this tragic accident, but when has anyone, authorities or otherwise, confirmed that?

They haven't. I'm not trying to be naive, but who's to say whether these kids were drunk or not? No one can be sure of that right now except for the 5 of those kids in that car. 3 of whom, we will never get a chance to ask.

Warn kids about the dangers of drunk driving. I'm 100% supportive of that. But no one should be able to degrade these teens for "stupid, drunken mistakes".

People are losing sight of what has happened here, and what's important. Two boys and one girl are never going to get to graduate...to get married...to grow up and become that person they should have become. And two other young girls' lives are forever changed. Scolding (wrongfully at that) the parents or teens for this will get us no where. We can only hope for others to be cautious on these dangerous roads (like so many have said, You can only know if you have driven them...). If you disagree, please... take a trip to 2123 and try to tell me that that road, and others, are COMPLETELY safe and have no unforeseen dips...turns...absence of shoulders...

I only wish some of you could have had the pleasure to know these kids and their families, like so many of us have. I assure you, you wouldn't be so quick to judge.

Anonymous said...

6:24 is right. The road IS dangerous, driving fast or not.
I have lived in Springtown my entire life, and yet I've never been down that road until the past couple of days. It's hilly, and ou don't expect a curve and then you get to the top of the last hill, and there it is all of a sudden with a shoulder that drops off.

Why can't some people understand that this was a terrible, tragic ACCIDENT? My heart goes out to all the families, friends, and communities.

I knew Michael Fresch growing up. He was one of the sweetest kids youd ever meet. He will be deeply missed.

But some of these posts make me sick blaming it on the parents. they had no control over the situation. I remember when my sister was a teenager she would tell me my and dad think im goin over to so and so's house, but im really gonna go here, dont tell them. Kids lie to their parents all the time. Im sure their parents wouldnt allow them out driving at 4 am if they knew what was going on.

Its not the parents fault.

Theres no one to blame.
It was just a fatal bad decision

everyone will be greatly missed

Michele said...

I live in Wise County and been down that road several times. YES the road may have been a small factor in the accident, BUT it wasnt the MAIN cause!

It is very sad about the loss of the teenagers. It was a hard lesson that came with a VERY high price, and I hope teenageres AND adults will learn from this.

In my opinion--IF adults were present and they KNOWINGLY allowed under age children to drink, THEN they should be responsible for their actions. For those of you who have children I HOPE you will share this story with them, and STRESS the importance of NOT drinking and driving.

BUT at this moment in time, families have lost children because of a STUPID error in judgement AND lack of supervision; so we should show respect.

Anonymous said...

2:48 - I have no idea whether you have children or not, but my dear, if you do and they are teens, you have a bunch of stuff to learn. First of all, they are NOT going to tell you everything they are doing - you just gut up and trust them - you just stay up and hope they get home - and you get up the next morning and go on with life NOT knowing exactly what they did, but that they DID get home safely.

And you do a whole bunch of praying and staying awake.

That's the realities of life.

And sometimes, you get a knock on your door or a midnight call that your kid is dead......

..may God be close to these families.

Michelle said...

6:24 Yes I do have kids and they are both past the teenage years. No they did not tell me everything they did, but they also knew where I stood on drinking and driving. You see we had a family member killed by a drunk driver, so my children were taught IF you drink and there is NOONE(who has NOT been drinking) to take you home...CALL me. I was called twice (when he was 17 and when she was 18). They knew I did not tolerate or approve of them drinking BUT if they decided to, they better call us to pick them up; even if they only had one beer.

As far as you saying I have alot to learn, I did NOT say in any part of my post "the parents should have known where there kids were"... I simply said.... IF...IF parents knowingly allowed underage kids to drink, they should be responsible for their actions. NOW, that could mean the parents of the child who held the party, or it could mean the parents of any child involved drinking.

So please make sure you understand the post before you write back.

ok. i have been reading all of the posts so far and i am shocked that all of you "mature adults" are blaming the parents for this tradijic accident! it was not there fault. im sure they didnt not hand his keys to him that night sayin DRINK DRIVE HAVE FUN! no. they said be careful drive safe. teens have many ways of getting around parents rules. its not hard. so if u think u have a good hold on your kid think again!

i was friends with ryan and he was a great person. he has opened the lives of all of us and showed us that things like this can really happen to us. i believe that him dieing has saved many of our lives. so i thank him!

I have grew up in Parasie, and already rolled one veihicle 2-3 times about 2 miles from the accident going around a corner for staying up too late and doing things I shouldn't have been doing. Lucky I didn't have anyone with me and came out without a scratch. I knew the girl that passed, I was friends w/ her and a grade above her. Parents should keep a closer eye on whats going on in our lives. I was drinking with two of the kids less than 2 weeks before the accident, i'm not going to say who, thats not right. But it has made me think about how fast you can go and cause others to as well.

This is 1:40. 1:01 is right as well. Parents can only do so much. All kids have to do is say there going to the mall, bowling ally, friends house, anything. The parent can't be around to stop them. A kid is going to do what he wants to do, we will find ways. Most parents are as strict as they can be, some kids tell there parents they are leaving and the parents ask no questions. I think if the parents were at fault would be only if they supplied them with alcohol or anything like that and knew what they were doing. But most parents have no idea when there kids are out messing up.

I was friends with two of the kids that died. Michael and Morgan.
ryan and michael where drinking and on shrooms and Morgan was pretty much drunk. Paige didnt do anything and priscilla was drinking but wasnt enough to do anything. thought Id let yall know

You didnt know them nor what kind of people they were. Michael was a sweet boy that would do anything for u in a heart beat and morgan was one of the sweetest girls and would always be there for u. so i hope the people on here that are saying some retarded messedup things that u cant sleep at night knowing with what u said.

I knew Michael Fresch, one of the three killed. And he was what you would call a "good kid", he never got in trouble and was his families rock. His older sister is my best friend, and I know that there entire family is going through the hardest thing in the world right now, and it is more than losing Michael. For those of you posting stuff on here about him and Ryan, and Morgan that is negative, think about what there families would say if they were to read these post. Michael was very smart and a great athlete, he was going to Ft. Worth Christian, this year he would have been a junior. Ryan was going to be a senior at Paradise High School, from what I know he was also a great student and a great athlete, and he was Michaels best friend. I don't know a lot about Morgan other than she was 14, and I am asumming that she went to Birdville High School with Michael.

An extended update...

Craig Fresch, Michael Fresch's father, died last night (7/27/08) after a long fight with cancer (this was announced through my church's update e-mail). The memorial will be Wednesday at 11:00.

In one week (8/4/08) his mom and sisters will commemorate the one year anniversary of the death of their son/brother, while having buried their husband/dad only 5 days earlier.

okay im knida late on commenting because i personally do not like to look up things like this but if you knew or know any of these AMAZING kids then you would not have said any of the things that you did i understand it was a mistake but its not like they made these decisions all the time so this proves that anything can happen if you people who said it was the parents fault even looked at the story you would know they told them they were going to a sleep over and its not like any of them were awake at that time anyways and the ones who say you have control over your kids me as a teen know YOUR WRONG so seriously? get a life and stop picking on teens who have had something tragic like this happen to them or parents who lost there kids i think all the ones who were saying how the kids and parents were wrong need to take a step back and realize your the wrong one! are you seriously trying to make a point its pretty bad when another teenager has to get on here and tell you wrong from right i think your all stupid for saying the things you did and yes the rode was part of the reasons that wasnt the first wreck that happened there and im sure it wont be the last you just better hope its not you because i will go be the childish one and comment on your story about how stupid you are!!! remember karma is a bitch and it will come back to you!!!

I just saw the memorial video for Michael and looked up the story. I am so very sorry for the loss of these children. I obviously did not know these children or their families, but anyone with children should be able to feel the loss in their hearts along with them. The video tore at my heart because there is a strong resemblance between Michael and my son and it is too easy to imagine this being my child. I hope that the three children that passed, the two survivors, and their family and friends find peace and may God bless you all. To those of you that throw the blame on the kids and their parents, I say, does it really matter at this point who's fault it is? Three children are dead and two seriously injured. If there was any compassion toward your fellow mankind, you would be more concerned with their loss than with wasting your time trying to destroy anything good these children left behind. Again, God bless all the people involved and may the children rest in peace.

The blood alcohol level for driver Ryan Lowe was 0.12. For Moss, it was 0.70. And it was 0.60 for Fresch. In Texas, someone with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent is considered legally intoxicated. The autopsies also indicated a measurable amount of marijuana in Lowe and Fresch.

What bothers me is the tributes on the net, describing at least one of the victims (I happened upon it as a sidebar video) as akin to God's light on earth and caring and compassionate etc., etc.
He portrayed well what he was taught and excelled at getting praise where it was offered.
He also, however, demonstrated an entirely different side, and was involved in this deadly crash as a result of it.
Those who want to honour him should adjust their tribute videos and pages to include the entire personality, so that any who come upon it will be given one more wake-up call to adhere to a "inspiring" lifestyle as much in private as in public.
