Casey Hastings, 19, a Lamar Univeristy freshman died Monday afternoon from injuries sustained in an early morning accident on Sunday, a spokesperson for Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont con-firmed.
Port Arthur police said the three-car accident oc-curred in the 4400 block of U.S. 69 at about 1:21 a.m.
According to police, Hastings was driving her 1997 Ford Mustang south in the northbound lane where it collided with a 2005 Toyota Corolla, driven by Danie Semien, 18. A third vehicle, a 1991 Honda Accord driven by April Keal, collided with the Corolla.
Police said they do not know why Hastings was driving on the wrong side of the road.
Semien was transported to Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beaumont and remains in critical condition. Keal and a passenger, Lonnie Ford, sustained minor injuries and were transported to the Medical Center of Southeast Texas.
Hastings graduated from Bridge City High School in 2006 where she was a cheerleader and honor student.
Word of Hastings' death quickly spread among the Bridge City student body and Connie Angelle, a counselor at Bridge City High School, said several students stopped by her office throughout the school day to talk about it.
Roommate Minda Tousha said Hastings was comatose after the accident but had brain activity. Tousha said she took a turn for the worse and was declared brain dead on Monday morning.
According to best friend Gabe Freeman, Hastings is survived by her father, Gary; her mother and step-father, Kathy and Tony Hernandez; an older sister, Ashley; and two nieces, Ashlyn and Natalie.
