2 East Texas Children Killed in Storm This Weekend
The storms that ripped through East Texas this weekend caused a tree to fall on the vehicle the Creel Family was driving home in Pollok, Texas. That tree crashed into the back seat of the car, killing 3 year old Jace and 8 year old Dilynn Creel. EMS staff on the scene treated and released the boy's parents for injuries sustained in the deadly crash.
Now, the Creel's friends and family have set up a Go Fund Me account in order to help this grief stricken family deal with funeral expenses and hopefully a replacement vehicle. The goal is $20,000 - at the time of this article, the total was just above $3,500.
Easttexasmatters.com is reporting that 8 year old Dilynn Creel was a very popular second-grade student at Central Elementary School in Pollok. The school will be bringing in extra counselors in order to help students and faculty deal with this terrible loss.
