TX Truck Crash Kills 11

From News.Yahoo.com:

Goliad, TX (AP) — At least 11 people died Sunday and 12 were injured after a pickup truck loaded with passengers left the highway and crashed into trees in rural South Texas.

State troopers and Goliad County sheriff’s investigators were looking into what caused the crash and did not immediately know the names and ages of the victims. Gerald Bryant, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said the victims were various ages and that he personally saw two young children among the dead at the scene.

The white 2000 Ford F-250 pickup was heading north on U.S. 59 on Sunday evening when it traveled off the right side of the highway near the unincorporated community of Berclair in Goliad County and struck two large trees. The 23 people were loaded inside both the truck’s cab and bed.
