PLANO, Texas (AP) - An attorney for a McKinney mother says she's
devastated by a deadly car crash that killed five people, including
her two children.
Attorney John M. Cooper says Pamela Palmer is "distraught about
what happened." He said Palmer went to a hospital where one of the
children had been taken.
The crash killed Palmer's two children who were ages 5 and 6 and
their foster family -- Geoff Hart, his wife, Christy and their
12-year-old daughter Rebekah.
The Dallas Morning News reported for its Tuesday editions that
Plano police are still trying to determine whether to file charges
against the man involved in the fatal crash.
Police say 46-year-old David Calhoun Jones of Metairie
(MEH'-tuh-ree), Louisiana, was driving fast in a rented black
Pontiac when he ran a red light. Police said Jones was in critical
condition at an area hospital. Police said alcohol didn't appear to
be a factor in the crash.
