One year ago today, 12 families received news that their loved ones were killed in a Concan-area crash as the group of First Baptist Church of New Braunfels members headed home from a three-day retreat at Alto Frio Baptist Encampment near Leakey. While two church members were airlifted to San Antonio, one later died to bring the tally to 13 victims.

The fatal crash occurred on U.S. Highway 83 North, 1.7 miles south of Farm-to-Market Road 1050 in Uvalde County.

Since then, Ross Allen, the son of Howard Bryan Allen, one of the 13 senior members killed in the fatal wreck, has filed a wrongful death civil suit against Jack D. Young, the driver of the 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup truck that collided head-on with the church bus, and Young’s father, the owner of the truck.
