Five killed in Texas ac­ci­dent

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Second Front -

VIC­TO­RIA, Texas (AP) — Au­thor­i­ties say five peo­ple have been killed and seven in­jured in a three-ve­hi­cle ac­ci­dent in South Texas.

The crash hap­pened at 11 a.m. Satur­day on U.S. 59, just north of Vic­to­ria.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are try­ing to de­ter­mine why a north­bound van hit the left rear of a north­bound semi. The van then struck a south­bound pickup truck.

Five peo­ple in the van died at the scene — the fe­male driver, two men and two chil­dren. Five oth­ers in the van were in­jured.

The pickup driver and a pas­sen­ger were in se­ri­ous con­di­tion. The driver of the semi wasn’t hurt.
