- An illegal immigrant could be charged with negligent homicide in a deadly car crash that killed a volunteer firefighter and his two young children.

Police say on March 31 in Wylie, Texas, Margarito Quintero swerved into oncoming traffic on on State Highway 78, slamming head-on into Captain Peter Hacking's vehicle. Hacking and two of his children, four-year-old Ellie and 22-month-old Grayson, were killed in the wreck.
