A Texas teenager who lost his mother and two siblings in a deadly crash almost two weeks ago has been charged in connection with that accident.
State Patrol says Christopher Cruz has been charged with driving without a valid license, failing to show proof of insurance, and failing to yield the right of way after proceeding from a stop sign along with six counts of careless driving causing death.
Fifteen-year-old Cruz was the sole survivor of the April 13 crash in southeastern Colorado, where the Ford Explorer he was driving collided with a freight train near Granada.
Sergeant Jeff Goodwin says loud music from the SUV's stereo contributed to the crash.
