13-year-old Texas Boy Drove Truck That Killed Nine in Head-on Smash Including Himself, His Dad, Six USW Students and Their Coach ‘Three Months After Mennonite Teen Burned His Home Down’

This is the 13 year-old Mennonite boy who was driving the truck that veered into a bus full of USW golfers, killing himself, his father, six of the students and their coach.

Ricky Siemens, 13, and his father, Heinrich Siemens, 38, were among nine people who died in Tuesday’s crash in Andrews, Texas.

The father and son were remembered in photos posted by grieving relatives on Facebook Thursday night, including snaps shared by Agatha Siemens, who is Ricky’s mom and Heinrich’s wife.

Those tributes came as a friend of the family revealed that Ricky had accidentally burned down his family’s home in December last year, completely destroying the property.

‘Just before Christmas, their house burned down,’ Aganetha Siemsens, who is not related to the victims, told DailyMail.com. ‘The 13-year-old made some eggs and forgot about it.’

Heinrich was a father of five, with his family part of the Mennonite church.
