It’s a heartbreaking story for families and friends that received the news about three Houston kids returning from South Padre Island for spring break that were killed in a traffic accident.

The three were killed in Corpus Christi Sunday as they were returning to Houston from a spring break vacation.  Many gathered outside of Brittanie Johnson’s mother’s home for a vigil in her memory Monday (March 22, 2016).

Sisters, 19-year-old Brianna Robinson and 17-year-old Jade Robinson, also died when the driver of their car, 18-year-old Shelby Coleman, lost control, distracted by the GPS on her cellphone according to Sgt. Nathan Brandley of the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The car collided with an 18-wheeler on the other side of the road, as Coleman lost control. The driver of the truck wasn’t injured.

The driver, Shelby Coleman, the only survivor of the crash, remains in critical condition in a hospital.

Jade Robinson, a Bellaire High School Volleyball player, was supposed to attend Tennessee Weslyan College in the fall on a full volleyball and academic scholarship. Her sister had been on the track team at Bellaire High School, and was attending Houston community college.

The teams twitter account also offered condolences and also mentioned that counselors were on hand Monday to be available to the students in need.

You can help the Robinson family with expenses who have set up a GoFundMe account. There is also a GoFundMe account that’s been set up for Brittanie Johnson.

The crash is still being investigated at this time.
