Five killed in Texas accident
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.
