Vigil held for young victims of Richardson overpass crash

Nearly one-hundred family, friends, students and teachers came to South Oak Cliff Sunday night to remember three young lives, taken too soon.

19-year-old Torneki McMath, 12-year-old Tyreana Mcmath and 13-year-old Myaa Moore died Saturday night after the SUV they were riding in fell from an overpass near the Richardson/Plano border.

Family and friends recited scripture and spoke with FOX4 about fond memories of the girls.



The four people involved in Saturday night’s overpass crash in Richardson have been identified by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The three people killed in the crash are Torneki McMath, 19; Tyreana McMath, 12 and Myaa Moore, 13, DPS confirmed.

DPS said 28-year-old Charqual McMath was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe Saturday night when she overcorrected and swerved to avoid slowing traffic on the George Bush Turnpike and Highway 75 interchange. The maneuver sent the vehicle plunging off of the bridge. The woman was not seriously injured.
