BROWNSVILLE, TX – A child remains in critical condition after a single-vehicle crash on FM 1420 last week. Texas DPS investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the accident that killed the child’s mother, 30-year-old Sandra Patricia Diaz of San Benito, and sent two other children to Valley Baptist Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

As previously reported on our Texas Accidents blog, the driver lost control of the vehicle at F.M. 1420, north of County Road 800 in Willacy County. Authorities say the vehicle went airborne, striking a utility pole.

We will continue to monitor this developing story and will update our blog with any new details as they emerge.
