Families mourn 3 Dallas teens killed in weekend crash

- Three families are mourning the loss of three girls killed in a horrific car crash over the weekend.

It happened Saturday evening when the 29-year-old driving their SUV lost control of the vehicle. It flipped off the George Bush Turnpike and landed more than 60 feet below.

Tyreana, Myaa and Torneik McMath were all killed. The girls were all relatives ranging in age from 12 to 19. The oldest graduated this past May from North Dallas High School.

The grandmother of one of the victims said the families have been hurt by many negative comments on social media following the crash.

“I think before they start judging they should get the facts before they even say anything. Because, they don’t know what happened. If you wasn’t there, you don’t know,” Virginia King said.

State troopers have determined no alcohol was involved in the crash. They believe the driver simply swerve to avoid something and overcorrected. The SUV rolled multiple times and struck another car before falling off the turnpike.

There was a vigil Sunday night for the girls outside TW Brown Middle School in Dallas. That’s where 13-year-old Myaa attended school and played basketball.

They will be buried Saturday. The funeral location has not yet been set, but there will be a wake Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. at True Lee Missionary Baptist Church in south Dallas.
