A fiery crash on Interstate 10 killed three people, including a teenage brother and sister, and injured 14 others when a dust storm hit Casa Grande on Tuesday morning.

Also killed was Edgar Ivan Medina-Vargas, 25, of Iowa City, Iowa, DPS said.

Medina-Vargas was driving a pickup truck. He was driving between two tractor-trailers, including the one his father was driving behind him. Medina-Vargas tried to stop his pickup when the tractor-trailer in front of him stopped, but his vehicle was smashed between the two larger trucks, the DPS said

Poor, poor families. Christmas will never be the same again for them. My heart goes out to them -- and in particular the father.

There was a case years ago in Houston where a truck driver killed a little girl on her bicycle. It wasn't his fault at all, but the tragedy caused him to be hospitalized and later die of a heart attack leaving 5 children without a father.

There's real tragedy in life that few of us can comprehend. So, I always say that we must seek out happiness however we can and not look for sorrow because sorrow can find us anytime.
