At approximately 8:30 a. m. on September 11, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers were notified of a one vehicle fatality crash on US 377 in southeastern Parker County. Upon arrival troopers located a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro in the center median of US 377 near Bear Creek. Initial investigation indicates that the Chevrolet was traveling east at a high rate of speed, failed to negotiate a curve, left the roadway, struck a culvert, went airborne and struck several trees before landing and coming to rest in the area of the creek. The driver, Jesus Barela-Bonilla, 24, was flown by air ambulance to Harris Methodist Hospital in Fort Worth with non life-threatening injuries. The front seat passenger, Brisa Carretero, 22, was pronounced deceased at the scene.
