Accident Report In On The Fatal Wreck In Tatum

The brother of one of the victims, 18 year old David Reid, hit the car the four girls were driving in. According to the accident report released today, David was racing and was going 100 miles per hour at the time of the accident. Toxicology results show he was not under the influence of alcohol.

16 year old Jaicey Robberson, 20 year old Kasey Moraw, 14 year old MacKinsey Blalock and 15 year old Rachel Reid were all killed.

It happened after a football game September 5th on Highway 149 just outside of Tatum. Jaicey was driving. According to the report, she pulled out of Kasey Moraw's driveway when they were hit broad-sided by David. The report shows David was racing with another vehicle.

Jaicey's father says the families are relieved they finally know what happened that night. "Me and her mother and everyone we miss her as much as you can miss someone. Nothing's going to bring her back, but there has to be some justice for those girls," says Jaicey's dad Jim Robberson.

The DPS report recommends David Reid be charged with four counts of criminally negligent homicide and one felony count of racing on a highway. The driver of the vehicle David was racing, Karl Cullens, is also expected to be charged with racing on a highway.

The case now goes to the district attorney's office to determine if those charges will be filed.
