BELL COUNTY (March 18, 2010)—Authorities Thursday identified the victims of a grinding collision between an SUV and a passenger car on FM 1670 in Bell County as Marissa Lynn Timm, 17, of Salado, Jordon Lewallen, 7, of Salado and Sarah Ann Foster, 18, of Salado.

Keith Lynn Lewallen, 46, of Salado was injured and remained at Scott & White Hospital in Thursday, but information about his condition wasn’t immediately available.

Timm and Jordan Lewallen died at the scene of the accident late Wednesday afternoon.

Foster died just before 8 p.m. Wednesday at Scott & White.

Word of the deaths left residents of Salado stunned.

Foster worked at Salado’s Brookshire Brothers grocery store, and coworkers said Thursday they were shocked by news of her death.

"I couldn't believe it, I still can't believe it, it's unreal," Jason Tolbert said.

"She was a doll, she was very lighthearted, good spirited, always had a smile on her face--she was part of the Brookshire family, said Cynthia Apichino, another coworker.

"We are all very heavy hearted right now," she said.

Authorities say the Hyundai sedan in which Timm and Foster were riding was northbound on FM 1670 near Amity Road south of Belton when the driver lost control of the car, which veered into the oncoming lane and collided with the southbound SUV.

Foster was reportedly at the wheel.

The Lewallens were riding in the SUV.
