    The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office says 12-year-old Octavia Watkins died Wednesday of blunt force trauma to the head. Crowley police tell the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that she was removed from life support.

    The girl and three other children were wearing wet clothes from a day at a Crowley pool when they rode on the vehicle's trunk and hood June 17. The other children were treated for injuries and later released from a hospital.

    The driver of the vehicle, 39-year-old Kisha Young, has been charged with drunken driving and other offenses.

    What a stupid move for the adult, and how sad for the children who trusted her. This is definitely a WTF situation. My heart goes out to the parents.
