The driver of a triple fatality wreck that occurred March 31 has been indicted by the Collin County Grand Jury for manslaughter charges.
Margarito Quintero, 33, of Plano, the driver of a full-sized van, was charged with three counts of manslaughter. These charges are a result of the deaths of Nevada Volunteer Fire Department Captain Peter Hacking and his two children, 4-year-old Ellie and 22-month-old Grayson.
Quintero, according to immigration officially, is an illegal immigrant that illegally reentered the United States in 2008 after being deported,
The head-on collision happened south of Lavon near Rettop Road near the crosssection of Hwy. 205 and Hwy. 78.
Quintero has remained in jail at the Collin County Detention Center since his arrest April 11. He has a federal immigration detainer on him by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He was also arrested in April on three charges of criminally negligent homicide filed by DPS.
The report from the Texas Department of Public Safety sites fatigue and wrong lane driving as factors contributing to the crash.
