ALVIN, Texas (AP) — Brazoria County authorities are trying to figure out how two young brothers pushing their father’s disabled truck were struck and killed by a car carrying a man who had been shot and also died.

Sheriff’s investigator Dominick Sanders says 12-year-old David Barajas II and his 11-year-old brother Caleb were pushing the pickup with their father Friday night about a quarter-mile from their home in Alvin.

A car slammed into them. A man in the passenger side was found to be shot in the head.

David Barajas died at the scene, his brother at a hospital. The man in the car, 20-year-old Jose Banda, also died in the hospital.

It’s uncertain if Banda was the driver or someone else was behind the wheel and fled.
