A three-car crash last week in Lavaca County, Texas killed a family of three who were headed to Dallas for a Van Halen concert at American Airlines Center on June 20.
Texas newspaper The Victoria Advocate reports that Brownsville resident Felipe Antonio Garcia, 39, and his two children — Brandon Michael Garcia, 9, and Anthony Cesar Garcia, 10 — along with girlfriend Christine Salazar, 42, of McAllen (some 550 miles south of Dallas) were traveling north on U.S. Highway 77 near Hallettsville when Garcia lost control of his 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac on the wet road and crossed into the southbound lane.

The car was then hit by a tractor-trailer truck that jack-knifed into the northbound lane and struck a 2007 Honda CRV, according to a report by the Texas Department of Public Safety. The truck driver and occupants of the CRV were treated for minor injuries at a local hospital.
DPS spokesperson Gerald Bryant said family members confirmed the Garcia group’s concert plans. According to reports, Garcia was a former U.S. Marine and a staff sergeant in the National Guard.
