Family members of Kaitlyn Byrum have confirmed that the 17-year-old Colmesneil girl has died from her injuries suffered in a Tuesday, March 23rd accident in San Augustine County. Byrum died early Wednesday evening in a Tyler Hospital.
Byrum was a passenger in a car driven by 18-year-old Lacy Reynolds. The Texas Department of Public Safety says that Reynolds pulled out in front of an SUV which struck the driver side of the car. Reynolds died at the scene and Byrum had been hospitalized ever since.
The two were reportedly headed to Chireno to watch a high school baseball game when the crash occurred.
