Family Killed in Car Crash on Way to Disney


Tragically an entire family was killed en-route to the happiest place on earth over the weekend. Furthermore, on Sunday morning, 25-year-old, Thomas Garza, 20-year-old, Lillian Luna, and 1-year-old, Brianna died in a car crash after their vehicle was rear-ended. Sadly, the family was on their way to Disney World in Orlando, Florida when an SUV crashed into the back of their car. Both Thomas and Lillian died at the scene. Brianna was ejected from the vehicle, and died a short time later at a nearby hospital.

The family is now mourning three lives taken so suddenly and tragically. Likewise, the family is remembered as being hard working, and living for their young daughter. 24-year-old, James Dameron was the driver that struck the back of the family’s vehicle, and suffered minor injuries. Dameron was driving on a suspended license at the time of the crash, and has also been charged with the following crimes earlier this year: possession of methamphetamine, resisting an officer without violence, texting while driving, unlawful speed, and littering on a public highway. According to police, Dameron will face charges in connection with the fatal crash.
