RICHARDSON — A Richardson teenager has died after being involved in a parking lot accident on Tuesday afternoon.

Robert Tucker and three other 16-year-olds were driving in a white Ford pickup truck outside the Super Target in the 600 block of South Plano Road when the driver lost control, causing the vehicle to roll over on its side and hit a tree.

Tucker was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other teens were taken to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Police said the driver of the car was speeding.

Friends of Tucker, who was a student at Berkner High School, have started a Facebook page for online tributes.
