Woman struck by car Jan. 3 dies

Medical examiner rules her death an accident


She was lying on the ground when the incident occurred and her father found her, according to Boswell.

“She was just bumped,” Boswell said, adding that Crum didn’t appear to have any injuries and that her body temperature was around 82 degrees.

The circumstances of the incident remained under investigation Friday, according to the Parker County Sheriff’s Office.

Crum, a native of Deer Park, moved to Parker County as a teenager and graduated from Weatherford High School in 1991. She was a member at Garner Baptist Church, where visitation is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. today, according to the family.

Crum leaves behind an 18-year-old son, Dustin.

“He was her most precious possession I guess you could say,” Pat Boswell said.

Crum always spoke her mind, her older brother, Matt “Red” Boswell, said.

“It was never boring around her,” Boswell said. “She always had something going on.”

Crum was the oldest of three sisters and was an interesting person to be around with many friends, her brother said.

She loved to go to garage sales with friends and bargain for a deal, according to her family.

Prior to the accident that left her disabled, she worked at jobs at Walmart, Cash America and a resale shop.

A bit of a cowgirl who rode prior to the accident, as well, Crum loved the country because of the animals, her mother said.

She had two dogs and a particular interest in turtles, collecting them from Craigslist, friends, garage sales and even finding them herself.

“She was ready not to have pain any more,” Pat Boswell said of her death Friday. “She’ll be missed. We have a void in our lives.”
