Alcohol Suspected, Attorney Killed in Southlake Car Crash

Posted on Jan 31, 2012
Police investigators are piecing together the hours that lead up to a fatal Dallas car crash which claimed the life of a Southlake attorney on January 4.

A witness has stated that he lives near the area of the crash and was awakened by a loud noise at around 2:55 a.m. Approximately 12 hours later, a passerby spotted a damaged guardrail and debris from a vehicle.

Southlake attorney Ronald Eddins, college student Kaat Debeuckelaer, and her boyfriend, Kenneth Lark, were found dead at the scene of the wreck. The vehicle, which still contained Debeuckelaer and Eddins’ bodies, had to be pulled from the water. Lark’s body was not found until several hours after the others.

The time line of events prior to the crash is still being pieced together. At around 2:45 a.m., the crash victims were spotted leaving The Men's Club together and driving away in Eddin's Porsche Panamera.

Alcohol use is thought to have contributed to the crash; however, the investigation is ongoing and toxicology reports could take a few months to be finalized.

The Dallas crash attorneys at the Hart Law Firm offer our condolences to the families of those who were lost in this devastating tragedy.
