One dead after vehicle crashes into Ft. Worth convenience store

A mother was killed and others hospitalized after a vehicle crashed into a Fort Worth storefront on Tuesday afternoon.

A grey Chevrolet Avalanche with a driver and passenger inside tried to flee the scene of a minor accident that occurred a few blocks away from the convenience store, according to police. The vehicle hit speeds of 80 to 100 miles per hour while traveling on Riverside.

When the truck tried to turn onto Lancaster, the driver, whom officials say is 19-year-old Isaac Adams, lost control of the vehicle and it wrecked into the storefront.

Sylvia Maria Zazueta, a Fort Worth mother of three, had gone inside the convenience store to pay for gas, leaving two of her children in the car, just as the driver of the Avalanche plowed into the building, pinning Zazueta under the pickup.

Zazueta sustained massive injuries to her head and chest. She was taken to a nearby hospital, but later died.

A MedStar spokesman said a total of seven patients, including Zazueta, were transported to local hospitals.

Adams will face an intoxication manslaughter charge, according to police. Police believe he was high on some kind of narcotics.
