AMS student dies in car crash

December 30, 2011 by Randy Keck

An Aledo Middle School student was killed in an early-morning car crash on Thursday between Springtown and Weatherford.

Alex Christian was killed, and classmate Maddie Mitchell received injuries when the pickup they were riding in ran through several mailboxes, then crashed into the side of a mobile home, which then caught fire.

The accident occurred shortly after midnight.

The driver of the truck, Josh Brown, 18, of Weatherford, was also killed. Another passenger, Hoss McCue, 15, was sent to Parkland Hospital in Dallas to be treated for burns.

More information will be provided as it can be confirmed.
