HASKELL COUNTY, Texas - A one-vehicle car crash in Haskell County took the life of a teenager on the way to school Monday morning.
The accident happened about 8:30 a.m. on FM 618 south of the intersection with Farm Road 600.
The crash involved six people in a Ford Expedition driven by a 16-year-old driver.
A 7th grade student from Stamford, 14-year-old Amber Conn, died at the scene.
Two others in the Ford were taken to Hendrick Medical Center and then transported to Cook Children's Hospital in Fort Worth.
