Questions surrounding the accident in early August that left three teens dead might only be answered by dash cam video.

On August 3, the teens died near Copperfield and Booneville when their car hit a tree and caught fire.

The underage driver had a blood alcohol content over the legal limit.

Bryan Police say they initially responded to a call about two cars racing.

A police cruiser with its lights on was behind the vehicle when it crashed, and captured the accident on video.

"They were not racing as in side by side, they were traveling at a high rate of speed, but they were not side by side drag racing," said Assistant Chief Curtis Darby, of the Bryan Police Department.

Police say the other car traveling with them at the time, was driven by a victim's older brother, Wayne Dicky Junior, who had at least one person with him.

Dicky has been charged with making alcohol available to those minors.

News Three has filed an open records request for that dash-cam video.
