5 kids, 1 adult hurt in three-vehicle wreck near Boswell High

Six people, including four teenagers, an adult, and an 11-year-old girl, were hurt early Tuesday in a three-vehicle wreck near Boswell High School in north Fort Worth, according to reports.

The wreck happened about 8 a.m. on West Bailey Boswell Road, about a quarter mile east of the high school, said Sgt. Chad Mahaffey, police spokesman.

Names were unavailable Tuesday afternoon, but Mahaffey said the driver of a Corvette, a 16-year-old girl, was taken by ambulance to JPS.

Her passenger, a 14-year-old girl was taken by CareFlite helicopter in serious but stable condition to John Peter Smith Hospital.

"This is not expected to be a fatality collision," Mahaffey said. "Preliminary reports from investigators indicate the passenger of the Corvette appears to have sustained the most severe injuries."

Both girls, he added, are students at Boswell.

Investigators said the black Corvette and a silver Mercury with two teenage boys in it were westbound on West Bailey Boswell Road.

"The Corvette was driving in the inside (left) lane and the Mercury was driving in the outside lane (right) lane," Mahaffey said in a news release. He said that the driver of the Mercury, a 16-year-old boy, "changed lanes to the left and entered the Corvette's lane."

The driver of the Corvette, "took evasive action," Mahaffey said, "and crossed the center lane divider, entering oncoming traffic at the same time a gray Honda was driving eastbound West Bailey Boswell."

The oncoming Honda, driven by a woman, age unavailable, struck the Corvette's passenger side, Mahaffey said.

"As that occurred, it appears the Mercury over-corrected its original left-lane change and the Mercury drove to the right and off the roadway," Mahaffey said.

The Mercury struck a brick wall of the Twin Mill Farms Subdivision, Mahaffey said.

The driver of the Mercury and his 17-year-old passenger received minor injuries, Mahaffey said, but he did not know if they had to go to the hospital.

"The driver reportedly attends Watson (Learning Center)," Mahaffey said. "The 17-year-old passenger reportedly attends Boswell High School."

The driver of the Honda was taken to Texas Health Fort Worth hospital and her 11-year-old daughter, a student at Wayside Middle School, was taken to Cook Children's Medical Center, Mahaffey said.

No other information was immediately available Tuesday afternoon.
