SAGINAW, Texas - There will be specially trained counselors at Boswell High School in the Fort Worth suburb of Saginaw after two bothers were killed in a car accident.
The fatal crash happened Wednesday afternoon on Bailey Boswell Road, which is not far from the school.
Fort Worth police said Isaiah and Elijah Lopez were in a car that collided head on with a pickup truck.
The two brothers died and three people in the truck were hurt.
Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD administrators confirmed Isaiah was a senior and Elijah was a freshman at Boswell High.
Our school community is in shock with the loss of Isaiah and Elijah. As we all work to process this startling news, I want to assure you that our focus is on the emotional well-being of our school community. The loss of any life is a tragic situation, especially when the loss is a classmate or a peer," Boswell Principal Nika Davis said in a letter to parents.
The school will have grief counselors available on campus this week to support their family and friends.
A prayer vigil was also held on the school’s baseball field Wednesday night.
Both Isaiah and Elijah played baseball for the school.
