Victims Identified in Deadly Fort Worth Chain Reaction Crash, Unclear if Charges Will Be Filed

Fort Worth, TX – Truckers are not among the six people who tragically perished in last week’s horrific chain reaction crash along an icy Fort Worth interstate.

According to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office, the deceased victims have been identified as:

• Tiffany Gerred, 34, of Northlake
• Aaron Watson, 45, of Fort Worth
• Michael Wells, 47, of Justin
• Christopher Vardy, 49, of Boyd
• William Williams, 54, of Pahoa, HI
• Tamara Mendoza Querales of Fort Worth




 

The awful scene that unfolded along I-35W in the southbound toll lanes – known as TEXPress lanes – just after 6 a.m. on February 11, not only claimed these lives, but three others were critically injured and 36 were taken by ambulance from the crash site.

In all, 65 people sought and have received medical treatment from the crash, Matt Zavadsky, spokesman for MedStar confirmed.

It is not known how many truckers were among those who suffered injuries.




 

However, haunting videos from the accident, which have continued to circulate on social media, show more than a dozen big rigs in the mangled wreckage.

Further, multiple tractor-trailers were observed barreling into other big rigs and passenger vehicles.

The investigation into the pileup is ongoing after officials said last week at a press conference it is likely to take some time.

The crash scene covered over a half mile area and involved a total of 135 vehicles.

No charges stemming from the accident have been filed at this time.

TransportationNation.com will continue to monitor new developments in the investigation.
