SOUTHMAYD, Tex. -- An eight-year-old boy was killed in a collision last week in Southmayd. Now authorities are starting the reconstruction to find out how it happened.
It was news that shocked the tiny community of Southmayd. The accident happened at Highway 56 and McElroy. Police say speed was possibly a factor, but officials are also evaluating blood samples from the 21-year-old driver who plowed into Heather Nunn as she was taking her 8-year-old son, Jarred Winegeart, to school.
Winegeart died at the scene.
Police say the bright morning sun played a major role in the wreck.
Nunn was attempting to turn on to McElroy from Highway 56 when she was broadsided.
Police say she had no way of seeing the other driver.
