PLANO, Texas (AP) – A driver accused in a wreck that killed a Plano couple and three children has been charged today with five counts of manslaughter.
The accident happened Sunday after the victims left church.
Plano police say 46-year-old David Calhoun Jones of Metairie (MET’-uh-ree), Louisiana, remains hospitalized from injuries suffered in the collision.
Bond is $100,000 for each count.
Police say the Hart family had just left a morning service at Custer Road United Methodist Church in Plano when their minivan was hit by a car that ran a red light.
The victims were Geoff Hart, his wife Christy, their 12-year-old daughter Rebekah and two girls they’d been caring for.
Police say Jones was driving the car that struck the minivan driven by Christy Hart.
