GREENVILLE, Texas (AP) - Four people have died, including three teenagers, when a wrong-way driver triggered a collision on a North Texas interstate.
Authorities say a vehicle driving east in the westbound lanes of Interstate 30 early Friday collided with an SUV carrying five teens. The collision near Greenville then caused the SUV to erupt in flames.
Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Kyle Bradford told KTVT-TV in Dallas that a tractor-trailer then struck both vehicles.
He says three of the teens died at the scene, along with the driver of the other vehicle. Another teen was transported in critical condition while the condition of the fifth teen was not immediately known. The driver of the big rig was not hurt.
KXAS-TV in Dallas reports the unidentified teens were traveling from Alabama to Austin.
