SEVEN people were killed and two children were critically injured after a head-on collision in Texas on Thursday.

NBC News, on Saturday, reported that the crash occurred around 4:40 p.m. local time on FM 1433, about eight miles north of Carrizo Springs.

Stonix News reports that Carrizo Springs is about 116 miles southwest of San Antonio.

According to Rene Cordova, a spokesperson at the Del Rio office of the Texas Department of Public Safety, a black Chrysler 300 was moving “at a high rate of speed” westbound on FM 1433 when it lost control and veered onto the wrong side of the road.

It crashed head-on into a 1998 red Dodge pickup that was traveling eastbound.

The Chrysler then rolled into a ditch and caught on fire, killing the driver and three passengers, Cordova said.

All four people were pronounced dead at the scene.

Due to the severity of their injuries, they have not been identified.
