Uncle: Dad recalls crash that killed boys as blur

HOUSTON (AP) — The uncle of two young brothers killed by a suspected drunken driver who was then shot and killed at the crash scene says the boys’ father was injured in the accident and remembers it only as a “blur.”

Gabriel Barajas said Friday his brother, David Barajas (bah-RAH’-hahs) Sr., remembers trying to get to his sons after the crash near their Houston-area home and then recalls waking up in a hospital.

Killed in the accident were 12-year-old David Barajas Jr. and his 11-year-old brother, Caleb.

Jose Banda, the 20-year-old driver who plowed into the brothers, was found shot after the Dec. 7 accident.

Investigators say they are still looking for the person who shot Banda as well as the weapon used in the slaying.
