A Nevada Volunteer Fire Department Captain and his two children died yesterday in a head-on vehicle wreck on Hwy. 78 between Wylie and Lavon near the intersection with Rettop Rd.

The wreck occurred about 2 p.m. Thursday, March 31, and closed down a stretch of Hwy 78 for 3-4 hours while emergency crews cleared the scene, Department of Public Safety Trooper Kyle Bradford reported.

Killed in the wreck were Peter Hacking, 36, of Lavon, Grayson Hacking, 22 months, and Ellie Hacking, 4. The family was traveling in a Toyota sedan.

The Hacking vehicle was southbound on Hwy. 78 when a full-size northbound van with three occupants served into its path and the two vehicles collided head-on, Bradford said.

The van was driven by Margarito Quintero, 33. Front seat passenger was Francisco Rameriz, 34, and rear seat passenger was Rigoberto Cruz, 19. The trooper reported that residences for the three men were not immediately determined.

Hacking and the children died at the scene and the occupants of the van were transported by medical helicopter to a hospital for treatment of injuries. These individuals are still listed in critical condition.

Bradford said that the cause of the wreck remains under investigation.

Responding to the emergency were Wylie Police Department, Wylie Fire-Rescue, Nevada Volunteer Fire Department, Josephine Fire/Rescue and the Department of Public Safety.
