About 500 mourners attended a funeral service for the seven people who died this week in northern Mexico when their vehicle plunged into a river off an unfinished bridge that apparently lacked warning signs or barriers.
The mourners gathered at a west Dallas church, around the seven caskets containing the remains of three adults and four children who died in the accident, which occurred early Thankgiving morning as they drove from Texas to visit relatives.
The family were two miles from their destination, the village of El Mezquite, according to the uncle of one of the victims.
Mexican state police say they are investigating the accident. The state police are trying to determine if local or state authorities were at fault for the missing signs and barriers at the bridge, which was damaged and partially washed out during recent floods.
