Teen Charged with Intoxication Manslaughter in Fatal Johnson County Crash: Six Dead, Two Injured, Including Irving Man

Luke Resecker

Luke Resecker, aged 17, faced arraignment before Judge Sydney Hewlett at the 18th District Court on March 26, 2024. He stands accused of six counts of Intoxication Manslaughter, two counts of Intoxication Assault, as well as charges for Possession of a Controlled Substance (Penalty Group 2) and Possession of Marijuana. Bail was set at $50,000, and Resecker was placed under monitored home confinement due to an ongoing medical condition preventing his booking into Johnson County Jail. He posted bail and was subsequently released.

The charges stem from a major car crash that occurred on December 26, 2023. Resecker was driving a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado southbound on US 67, south of Cleburne, Texas, when he crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with a 2021 Honda Odyssey traveling north on the same route.

Victim: Rushil Barri of Irving

In the tragic crash, the passenger in Resecker's Silverado sustained serious injuries. Six occupants of the Honda Odyssey lost their lives, while one suffered severe injuries. The driver of the Odyssey was identified as 28-year-old Rushil Barri from Irving, who was transporting family members visiting from Alpharetta, Georgia (near Atlanta in Fulton County). The group had been enjoying a day at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Glen Rose.

The investigation into the incident has been concluded and submitted to the Johnson County District Attorney’s Office for further action.
