A former Jasper resident and two other people were killed in a weekend accident in the west Texas Permian Basin on the north side of Odessa.

The Odessa American is reporting that 19-year-old Jasper native Kaenan Garms, along with Evan Hill, 18, of Odessa, were pronounced dead at the scene shortly before 3:00 Saturday morning, while 19-year-old Andrew Nading, also of Odessa, died a short time later at a hospital.

According to the report, Odessa Police determined that Garms was driving a Ford F-150 pickup truck and ran a stop sign, resulting in the truck being hit by a GMC Terrain SUV.

Hill was a back seat passenger in the pickup truck, and Nading was driving the SUV.

Meanwhile, one passenger from the truck and one passenger from the SUV were reportedly listed in critical condition.

Garms played soccer while attending school in Jasper, and the Jasper Soccer Booster Club posted a statement on their Facebook page. It said “JHS Soccer is in mourning once again as we remember former athlete #3 on the field, but forever one with our hearts. Kaenan Garms, we thank you for exciting soccer matches & thrilling goals you contributed to the team. Rest easy & send your soccer momma, Danielle Hancock much consolation for the days to come.”
