Students at Rockwall High School are in mourning today after one of their classmates was killed in a car crash Thursday evening.

Rockwall County Sheriff's Department spokesman David Davidson tells CBS 11 News that 15-year-old Kyla Renee Jones, a freshman at Rockwall High, was a passenger in a car that crashed on FM 66 near FM 549 just after 6 p.m. Police say the car, a Honda Civic, was eastbound on FM 66 when the driver apparently lost control. The civic ran off the road, then back onto the road and into oncoming traffic. Read more

In general, the local papers do not print sad and bad news. Rockwall has a suicide about every six to eight months and a monthly meth lab bust, never hits the papers. Want Rockwall's real stats?, the only place to find them is through the FBI statistics database. Rockwall is forced to surrender that data to the FBI.

In the case of the right to privacy of children, the local papers may be exercising restraint and have good intentions on behalf of the privacy and the mourning of the family. Kyla was a good and happy kid which makes her memorable and that event all the more sad. The media in these incidents should ask the family whether they wish for the public at large to be informed of the accident.

The highway 66 is a State of Texas nightmare designed with poor engineering and insufficently skilled contractors. The particular portion near where Kyla died has a drop off that looks less than what it really is. Its easy to misjudge and serves as a very big danger to young drivers. Where Hwy 552 travels east and meets Hwy 66 and where Hwy 66 intersects with FM 549 are all places new drivers should never be on. All it takes is one wheel to go off the side of the road and depending on where ones car gets directed, death or crippling injury is very likely to occur from loss of control. I never understood why that portion of 66 was not addressed. Surley it can be straightened and gaurd wires added where large drop off occurs. Travel up 66 and you see a handful of little crosses and teddy bears that have built up over the years from young people's death. How many deaths are necessary before 66 is remodelled? Where is rockwall's mighty city council? The city does not control the state but can lobby and annoy.

The average is every two to three years on that stretch, the historic deaths are surprising. Unless several lobby, there will be another death. A cause needs a face. And if someone was to take that incident and present a good time line of past deaths to the state director of transportation, he might just redo 66.
