SAN ANTONIO -- A suspected DWI crash killed four people early Sunday morning south of Kerrville on Highway 173.

Texas Department of Public Safety officials said Regelio Palacios, 18, caused a crash that killed Sarah and Terry Penny.

Also killed in the crash was the couple's friend Eddie Andrade and Duggen, Andrade's dog.

The friends were on their way back from a performance in Uvalde when the crash occurred.

Jerry Reyna, Sarah and Terry's son, said his mother would have forgiven Palacios.

"My mom would have been able to forgive that person," Reyna said with tears in his eyes. "It's just one of those things where you have to turn the other cheek when something like this happens."

Reyna and his family placed flowers at the site of the fiery crash on Sunday afternoon.

Reyna said he takes comfort that his mother and his stepfather lived life to the fullest.

"I'm glad they all went together," Reyna said. "(They're) in a happy place right now."
