Correction: Fatal Wreck-South Texas story

A corrected version of the story is below:
4 dead after SUV veers into oncoming traffic in South Texas
Four people are dead after an SUV traveling along the Texas Gulf Coast veered into oncoming traffic and struck a sedan head-on
FULTON, Texas (AP) — Four people are dead after an SUV traveling along the Texas Gulf Coast veered into oncoming traffic and struck a sedan head-on.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says witnesses reported a Ford Escape was passing several vehicles late Friday when it crossed the center line north of Fulton, near Aransas National Wildlife Refuge.
The SUV struck a southbound Honda Civic carrying four people. Three people in the Civic, including a 6-year-old girl, were killed and a fourth person was critically injured. The adults in the Civic were not wearing seat belts, but the child was restrained.
The driver of the SUV, identified by DPS as 22-year-old Erin Caroline Donalson, was flown to a Corpus Christi hospital where she died.
DPS troopers are continuing to investigate the wreck.
