Twenty-four-year-old Fort Worth resident and mother Sylvia Zazueta perished after a truck crashed into a Star Food Mart at around 2 p.m. last Tuesday, March 31, according to dfw.cbslocal.com.
Police officers took the 19-year-old truck driver, Isaac Adams, into custody on suspicion of intoxicated manslaughter. According to preliminary police investigations, Adams’ truck was going between 80 to 100 miles per hour at the time of the accident. He lost control of the vehicle while attempting to make a turn onto Lancaster Avenue from Riverside Drive and crashed into the convenience store. Reportedly, Adams was involved in a minor accident minutes before and fled the scene, which spurred the secondary crash into the Star Food Mart.
Fort Worth firefighters stabilized the building to stave off collapse concerns and blocked all of its entrances to discourage anyone from going inside. Seven others were injured in the accident. Zazueta was a mother of three.
