Crash kills 3 teens, including Bellaire High volleyball star

1024x1024 (6)
A crash near Corpus Christi killed three Houston teens returning from Spring Break.

One moment, the four young women were driving through South Texas cotton fields after a quick spring break trip to South Padre Island. Then the driver glanced at the map on her telephone.

The distraction caused the 18-year-old high school senior to lose control of the vehicle, which veered across the median and into the path of an oncoming 18-wheeler, police said.

The impact crumpled the car, instantly killing two passengers, former Bellaire students Brittanie Johnson, 18, and Brianna Robinson, 19. Robinson’s 17-year-sister, Jade, a Bellaire senior and standout on the volleyball team, died at a Corpus Christi-area hospital a few hours later. Shelby Coleman, 18, a Lamar High School senior, remains hospitalized in critical condition. click here for complete story
