DALLAS, TX (05/29/2014) — Delvin Washington, Kevin Ramos and Devon Harper have been hospitalized in critical condition following a Thursday evening car accident in West Oak Cliff.
According to Dallas police, three teenagers (Delvin Washington, Kevin Ramos and Devon Harper) have been critically injured in a serious car accident in the 2500 block of West Illinois Avenue in the Oak Cliff district of Dallas, Texas.
The accident occurred at just before 4:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon. All three teens were inside the black car (believed to be a Mazda6) at the time of the accident. The sedan had significant damage to the driver’s side, and the accident knocked down a light pole.
It’s reported that all three injured teens attended Dr. Wright L. Lassiter Jr. Early College High School at El Centro College, and were headed to graduation rehearsal at the time of the crash. Delvin Washington, Kevin Ramos and Devon Harper were all transported to Methodist Dallas Medical Center. The driver (Delvin Washington) remains in critical condition after undergoing surgery Thursday night. Kevin Ramos and Devon Harper are in fair condition with neck pain, scrapes, bruises and broken bones.
According to witness accounts, the driver of the Mazda was operating his vehicle at a high rate of speed while following or racing a second vehicle. As the Mazda passed an 18-wheeler truck to the left, the car struck the median (some accounts say the driver clipped the semi-trailer), lost control, and slammed into a light pole. A police investigation is continuing.
