Families are in disbelief after a sad reality is sinking in after five people were killed in a crash in Fort Worth and 12 others were injured.
It happened on I- 30 between the exits for Beach Street and Oakland Boulevard.
A westbound driver lost control and crashed, then good Samaritans, rushed to help but never expected an 18-wheeler to drive right into the scene.
43-year-old Mary Hernandez’s family says she was always taking care of others.
“[She] bathed us, clothed us, drove us around when she got her license, recalls sister Lisa Martinez.”
Hernandez was a single mom to three children, an adopted mother to a host of stray animals, and on the job, she worked as a hospice nurse for terminally ill adults and children.
“That’s the kind of person she was, had a big heart, wanted to help everyone.”
