7-year-old girl dies, others injured, after one-vehicle wreck in Henderson County


Texas Department of Public Safety PIO Sgt. Jean Dark says a child has died following a one-vehicle wreck in Henderson County.

The statement from DPS is as follows;

On June 04, 2018, troopers responded to a one vehicle fatal crash on RM-2329 in Henderson County, one mile south of the city of Eustace.  Investigative report indicates the driver of a 2003 Ford Expedition, driven by Stacy Gale Laroche, 28, of Mabank was traveling south on RM-2329 approaching a curve in the roadway to the left. 

Laroche, distracted by one of the children in the vehicle, failed negotiate the curve, traveled off the west side of the roadway and vaulted over a private drive.  The vehicle landed on its right side then tumbled end over end before coming to rest upside down in the ditch. 

The driver was transported to Christus Mother Frances Hospital in stable condition.

A passenger in the vehicle, identified as Aviana Laroche, 7, of Mabank was airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Dallas where she later died (6/6/18).  She was pronounced by Dr. Cindy Darnell.

A four-year-old female passenger was transported to UT Health Tyler in stable condition.

A three-year-old male and a one-year-old female were not injured.
