The Cummings family lives right on highway 59 and accidents on their property are common. But, what they witnessed Saturday night was like nothing they had ever seen. "The moaning and the wailing of children was very overwhelming and the mother asking and begging for help and then the ambulance personnel trying to find their way in the dark." DPS troopers say Justin Sutton of Trinity was intoxicated while driving his expedition on 59. Authorities say the expedition hit the back of the families suburban causing them to leave the roadway and flip at least 3 times.
Eduardo and Angie Medellin were in the suburban with their 4 children Eduardo Jr., Eric, Edgar and Emily. All the children were ejected from the vehicle and Eduardo Jr., the oldest, was killed. Now Angie is realizing life will never be the same. She said, "It is sinking in. Things have changed and I will never hold my beautiful son close to me." The other 3 children were all taken to Children's Memorial Herman in Houston. They are all doing much better. Even Eric, who lost one of his legs, could soon be out of ICU.
