Nocona businessman Craig Carter released the following statement Tuesday regarding the tragic accident that took the life of his daughter and mother-in-law.

This is an extremely difficult time for my family. Leigha and I are absolutely devastated at the
loss of our daughter, Lux, and our mother Rose. While our faith tells us that both Lux and Rose
are watching over our family from Heaven, it is no less painful knowing that we will not be able
to embrace them again. We continue to pray for our son, Rex, who remains in critical condition,
and ask that you continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Leigha and I wish to
express our deepest gratitude to those first responders who arrived on the scene and did
everything possible for our family — your efforts will always be appreciated.
