A Cape Girardeau father and his 2-year-old son have been killed in a crash in Garland, Texas, Monday.
Authorities say 28-year-old Jarred Schumpert and his son Lyndon died at the scene. Jarred’s wife and the child’s mother, Laura Schumpert, is reportedly in fair condition at a Dallas hospital.
Investigators say the Schumperts’ vehicle had stopped when it was rear-ended by a large SUV. Police tell local media the driver of the second vehicle could face criminal charges.
The Schumperts were returning home after visiting relatives in Texas.
