WACO, Texas (KWTX)
Cassandra Higginbotham, 29, of Carrollton, who was critically injured in a six-vehicle crash during a rainstorm on March 11 on Interstate 35 that claimed the life of her daughter, has died at a local hospital.
Brynleigh Higginbotham, 4, died in the late-afternoon accident on the southbound interstate in Elm Mott north of Waco.
Her father, Daniel Higginbotham, 30, remains in critical condition.
Southbound lanes were closed because of an earlier crash when the KIA SUV in which the Higginbothams were riding was struck from behind.
A second child, Kason Higginbotham, 8, was taken to McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple where he is in stable condition.
Ten others were treated for minor injuries at the scene. One victim had to be freed from the wreckage of a vehicle.
