"Patrick Fagan was most known for his ability to make everyone burst with laughter," said  Megan Martinez, a friend of the young man. "An accounting major with a kind and quiet spirit, he loved football and tennis. He was also an extremely talented dancer, often found in the center of a party or dance circle."

Martinez said Fagan constantly told his friends how much he enjoyed being a part of SFA's TKE chapter.

According to Texas Department of Public Safety Corporal Jesse Stewart, Kevin Christian Garcia, 19, of Houston, was driving a 2006 Ford Escape southwest on State Highway 315 in Rusk County when he made a U-turn and headed northwest. Then Garcia pulled onto the shoulder to make another U-turn and pulled out in front of an 18-wheeler, which struck his Escort on the driver's side. The accident occurred at 7:40 p.m. on May 4.

Buck, Fagan, and Burgos-Carrillo were passengers in Garcia's Escape. Garcia was seriously injured in the accident.

In the days following the accident, a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper confirmed that the Garcia had been drinking before the accident occurred.
