Two Texans Killed in Terror Attack in Nice

A father and son from the Austin area are among the victims killed in the Nice, France terror attack.

Sean Copeland and his 11-year-old son, Brodie, were on a family vacation in France when they were killed by a truck driver who  plowed through a large crowd celebrating Bastille Day.

Sean and Brodie Copeland  lived in Lakeway, Texas.   Brodie played youth baseball and his father was a coach.

A Facebook post by the Hill Country Baseball Club read,” Nobody deserves this type of fate, especially not such a wonderful family.”

At least 84 people were killed in the attack Thursday,  along with the driver.  The suspect belonged to a 31-year-old Frenchman of Tunisian descent.  He had previous misdemeanor convictions, but no known link to extremist groups.
