Authorities: 11 dead after pickup crashes
GOLIAD, Texas — Authorities say a pickup truck has crashed in South Texas, killing 11 people in the vehicle and injuring 12.
Louann Presas, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said the crash occurred about 7 p.m. Sunday near Berclair when the truck ran off the highway and crashed into some trees. The unincorporated community is about 100 miles southeast of San Antonio.
Presas said all the victims were in the same Ford F-250 pickup.
She said the extent of the injuries to the surviving victims wasn’t immediately clear. Crash investigators were still at the scene around 11 p.m.
A Goliad County sheriff’s dispatcher deferred comment to a department spokesperson, who did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press.
