An alleged drunk driver has been arrested after she struck and killed six-year-old twin sisters who were playing next to their family’s fireworks stand.
Angelica Garcia, 36, is accused of drunkenly driving through a barricade off Highway 80 in Odessa, Texas on Wednesday night.
The two little girls, Mia and Mya Coy, were playing together close to the fireworks stand when they were struck by Garcia’s 2014 Chrysler 200.
Police say Garcia only stopped when she crashed into a large trailer.
The sisters were rushed to the Medical Center Hospital where they were both pronounced dead.
No one else was injured in the crash, according to police.
Officers said Garcia was drunk and they arrested her at the scene.
The parents of the girls, Raul and Agueda Coy, said their daughters did everything together.
‘God allowed these precious angels to enter this world together to exit together too,’ they said.
‘These babies did almost everything together. They had a whole life ahead of them but that was taken away.
‘They were very loving children always knew how to put a smile on anyone in the room.’
They also thanked their family and friends for their prayers and thoughts.
A GoFundMe page set up to help the family of the twins has already raised more than $35,000.
Garcia has been charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter and was released on $70,000 bail on Thursday.
