Three killed in deadly Fort Worth wreck late Sunday

A four-month-old baby and her two grandparents were killed in a deadly wreck late Sunday in far north Fort Worth.

The victims were all from a family of immigrants from Nepal. Three more family members were also hurt. Two kids were also seriously hurt and remain in local hospitals.

The accident happened on Blue Mound Road near Highway 287 about 9 p.m. Sunday. Police said it appears a white Honda Civic veered into oncoming traffic and was hit by a pickup truck. 

Laxu Kami says his father Damber loved Christmas and had just finished singing Christmas carols with his family and fellow church members from the Eternal Life Church in Fort Worth Sunday night.

It was on their way home that 51-year-old Damber Kami, his 45-year-old wife Pabitra and their 4-month-old granddaughter Sharon Darjee were killed in a head-on crash.

"It was very sad for us, and it was very, very painful,” Laxu said. “Pray for our family that our lives will be saved."

The couple's adult daughter and Sharon's mother Rupa and two other grandchildren, 7-year-old Rena and 14-year-old Moniraj, were also in the white Honda Civic. They're still in the hospital.

Damber Kami was the sole provider for his family and a deacon in his church.

"He's not only important to our church; he's very important in our community,” said Pastor Raj Tamang.

Police said it looks like the family's Honda Civic may have veered into oncoming traffic and was hit head-on by a pickup truck. The driver of the pickup survived and was taken to the hospital.

Meanwhile, this family is trying to draw strength from each other.

"For the family, it is a whole lot a very, very big loss because he used to handle everything for the family,” Tamang said.

The severity of the two kids’ injuries are expected to keep them in the hospital for several more days.
