Teen killed in crash near Azle

A 13-year-old Palmer girl was killed Saturday in a traffic accident near Azle.

A 13-year-old Palmer girl was killed Saturday when she was ejected from a sports utility vehicle that rolled in a crash near Azle, officials said Sunday.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office identified her as Cassidy Fuller. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Fuller was a passenger in a vehicle, the medical examiner’s office website said.

The wreck occurred about 3:30 p.m. Saturday on Farm Road 3325 near Azle.

A 1994 Ford Explorer was northbound when it began to hydroplane and traveled off the road. The highway was wet because of a Saturday thunderstorm in the area, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety report.

The Explorer rolled twice and then hit a steel pole.

Fuller was one of two teens ejected in the crash. Another 13-year-old girl was taken to Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth. An 11-year-old in the back seat was taken to the Fort Worth hospital. The conditions of the girls were not available Sunday.

DPS officials identified the driver as Kristen Spencer, 27, of Willow Park and her front seat passenger as Christopher Rose, 28, of Willow Park. Spencer and Rose were taken to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth.

A DPS investigation is under way.
