I have found no info on this yet. I heard that it was 2 teenage girls in the accident; one from McKinney Boyd and one from McKinney North, and that there were 2 fatalities. Small silver mercedes.

What I know which is not official what so ever is that there was a truck and a Mercedes one of them ran a red light and struck the other car. The people in the truck go to McKinney High i do not know about the people in the Mercedes. Supposedly 1 person has already died and 1 is in the icu at the moment. Please post a link if anyone finds an article somewhere.
Thank you

I didn't hear about the fatalities, but I know there were two careflights and there was a white truck and a mercedes. We drove by (on accident) trying to get to blockbuster and saw that there had been a terrible accident.

My kids were at the scene of the accident and told me that the truck was driven by a 15 yr old girl. Her older brother who is a senior a MHS was in the passenger sit. They went through the red light and hit the Mercedes. The girl was taken to a local hospital and suffered a concussion. Her brother and the driver of the Mercedes were care flighted out. The Mercedes driver was the only one in that car. I did hear that the Mercedes driver died. I don't know the fate of the brother but he was believed to be in critical condition as of last night. Very tragic for all involved.

We were at the accident site last night as well. Have never seen this many people at a car accident before. The white Mercedes Benz was very small and in very bad shape. Yes, what others said is that the pickup truck ran the red light going south on Hardin and hit the Mercedes going East on El Dorado. Bad intersection on the weekends and too much traffic. We saw two helicopters at the scene. My 15 year old son drives soon, and it terrifies me.

We were at the scene last night as well. The girl driving the white truck goes to MHS, no license she did have her brother's truck, but her brother was not in the passenger seat a friend who attends MHS was. We were talking with the woman who was driving behind the truck and she said the girl was making a left turn, ran the red light and drove over the Mercedes. The Mercedes' driver was air lifted to the hospital, I was told that he did not die, but was in critical condition. We were told the girl was not injured and the boy in the truck with her was taken to the hospital as a precaution. Some of my daughter's friends that were at the scene said they saw the boy and girl get out of the truck themselves and were walking around and crying. The Mercedes was crushed, just crushed. It was awful. There were two helicopters at the scene both on Hardin - one on each side of the road. I was told that there was another at the scene but had already taken off. The two that were there took off while I was present and they were both empty. It was a terrible sight to see. This accident is the reason why I pray every time my daughter walks out the door and gets in her car.

You would think this would be on the news. There are so many rumors swirling around, I dont know what to believe. I know one of the guys in the truck but I can't find out if he is ok or not.

So sad...I literally live a few streets away from that intersection and I happened to drive by that night to get a movie. So much commotion with all the police, care flight, ppl, ems, etc. My husband and I will pray for those families and friends that are affected with this awful tragedy. I feel that it's very strange that the newspapers haven't even mentioned this story.

Okay so I have an update. The girl is fine, her step-brother who was in the truck is fine as well. Unfortunately, the man driving the Mercedes passed away. We are friends of the doctor who treated the man at the hospital. I do not know what his name was. My prayers to his family and to that poor young girl who has to live with this for the rest of her life.

My friend was the doctor who took care of the man in the mercedes at the hospital and he died last night in the ICU. The girl driving didn't have a concussion though because when I got there and they were putting her in the ambulance she was hysterical crying saying she was sorry over and over again. John, her brother, was care flighted out since he was in total shock and was just rambling random things.

What is the name of the doctor who treated the mercedes driver? Did they find out the drivers name because he had no ID and the car he was driving wasnt his.
