Three people are dead, following an Easter morning crash on S.H. 123 north of Stockdale.
According to Trooper Anthony Flores of the Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol, three pickup trucks were involved in the crash at approximately 9:30 a.m. March 27. The driver of a white GMC pickup appeared to lose control, veering from the southbound lane of S.H. 123 into the northbound lane near the highway's intersection with C.R. 426. The driver of a black Z71 pickup in the northbound lane took evasive action, but was unable to avoid a collision. The driver of a third pickup, a red Toyota, saw the accident. Unable to take evasive action, he hit the other two vehicles, Flores said.
The driver and passenger of the GMC truck were pronounced dead at the scene, along with the passenger of the Z71. The drivers of the Z71 and Toyota were transported by AirLife to the San Antonio Military Medical Center.
The identities of those involved are not being released at this time, pending notification of next of kin, Flores said. The crash remains under investigation.
S.H. 123 is closed in both directions as the investigation and cleanup continue.
