Denton ISD officials say the funeral for Daniel and Diego Rivera is scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 2255 N. Bonnie Brae St.

The two brothers were killed in a vehicle crash last week on Hickory Creek Road. Their bodies were found in a white SUV that was submerged top-down in Hickory Creek, authorities said.

Their deaths have prompted a discussion in the Denton community about what more Denton County officials should do to help prevent other tragic accidents on the county-run portion of the road. There have been multiple fatalities on Hickory Creek Road, records and news reports show.
