Two people are dead and three others have been hospitalized following a head-on collision in Fredericksburg Saturday night.
According to KSAT, the fatal crash occurred around 9:12 pm in the 3000 block of SH 16 South.
A preliminary investigation suggests a pickup truck was traveling southbound on SH 16 South when it collided head-on with a minivan traveling northbound.
The driver of the pickup and the front seat passenger of the minivan were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the minivan and two backseat passengers of the vehicle were flown to hospitals in San Antonio.
The identities of those involved in the accident have not been released, and the conditions of those injured were not immediately available.
Seeing an oncoming vehicle barreling down your lane of traffic can be horrifying; however, it is important to remain as calm as possible and take appropriate evasive action.
