6-24-05 – Services for the toddler that fell from a truck in Sherman Monday night have been set. Jose Angel Lopez Jr. was pronounced dead at 3:45 p.m. Wednesday at Children’s Hospital in Dallas.
Police say 33-year-old Dawn Carrasco told them one of the children took off his seatbelt and opened the passenger door Monday evening as their pick-up turned into a convenience store on the corner of US 75 and FM 1417.
When she leaned over to grab him, Dawn, Jose and two other small children fell out. All of the victims were run over by the truck.
Police do not know if the children were wearing seatbelts, but they were not in car seats, which is against the law.
The Critical Accident Investigation team of the Sherman police department conducted an accident recreation Wednesday. The team used survey equipment as part of their reconstruction. The results could take weeks to process.
Family night for Jose Lopez is set for Friday at 6:30 p.m. at Waldo Funeral Home in Sherman. The funeral will be held Saturday at 1:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Sherman.
