Amarillo Wrongful Death Attorney Offers Free Consultations: 2 Adults Killed (Donna Brewer and Makini Pointer), 5 Juveniles Injured (in Friday Wreck

Posted on May 8, 2017 by Jesse Quackenbush, Attorney

DPS has released the names of the two people killed in the one-vehicle crash Friday on IH-40 in Carson County, resulting in the death of two people.

At 1:35 p.m., 60-year-old Donna Brewer, of Edmond, Okla., was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe westbound on I-40. Brewer veered off to the south of the roadway and over corrected the steering which caused her to lose control of the vehicle. The Chevrolet then traveled back across the westbound lanes of travel, rolled over multiple times and landed in the barrow ditch north of I-40.

Brewer and front seat passenger, 33-year-old Makini Pointer, of Oklahoma City, were pronounced dead on scene by Carson County Justice of the Peace, Jean Hardman. Brewer was partially ejected from the vehicle and Pointer was ejected from the vehicle.

There were five juvenile passengers in the vehicle and four of them were ejected from the vehicle. They were all transported to the hospital.

Pointer and four of the juveniles were not wearing seat belts.

A 15-year-old male, an 11-year-old female, a 5-year-old male and a two-year-old female had non-life-threatening injuries. A 13-year-old female sustained life-threatening injuries.

Brewer was wearing her seat belt. The two-year-old female was restrained by a child passenger seat at the time of the crash. She was removed from the vehicle by a good Samaritan who stopped to render aid.

All of the people in the vehicle were related.

The factor that caused Brewer to veer off the road is still under investigation.
