ANDREWS, Texas (AP) — Five people have been killed in a three-vehicle collision in West Texas.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says its troopers were sent to the crash scene Sunday night at an intersection on the desert outskirts of Andrews, Texas, about 35 miles (55 kilometers) northwest of Odessa.
A DPS statement Tuesday said 27-year-old Augustin Lujan ran a stop sign in his Ford Mustang and slammed into the side of a northbound semitrailer, pushing it into a southbound F-150 pickup truck.
Lujan died at an Odessa hospital while the semitrailer driver, 51-year-old Juan Ramirez, died at the scene. All three occupants of the F-150, 51-year-old Silverio Gonzales, 42-year-old Maria Cepeda-Orona and 7-year-old Allison Gonzales, also died at the scene.
The relationship of the F-150′s occupants was unclear.
