Two die in Texas 71 crash
Two people were killed Friday morning in a collision on Texas 71 about two miles east of U.S. 281 near Shovel Mountain Road, a Texas Department of Transportation official said.
The collision occurred shortly after 9 a.m., when a sport utility vehicle traveling west on Texas 71 crossed into the eastbound lanes and hit a dump truck belonging to Burnet County, said state spokesman John Hurt.
The dump truck caught fire with the driver still inside, Hurt said.
The identities of the deceased were not released Friday.
