Eight people have been injured in a head-on crash in Walker County. The accident occurred last night, on State Highway 75, near Mitchell Cemetery Road, on the outskirts of Huntsville, Texas.
Investigators are still working to determine the details of the incident. When first responders arrived at the scene, they found a Chevy Malibu and a Chevy pickup truck on the side of the road, both with heavy front-end damage. The pickup truck was heading southbound on SH-75 in Walker County when its left rear tire blew out, which investigators believe caused the truck to swerve into oncoming traffic, where it then struck the Malibu in a head-on crash.
The driver of the Malibu and the two children in the backseat were lifeflighted to a nearby hospital. The person in the passenger seat was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the pickup truck and his passenger, a pregnant woman, were also airlifted to a nearby hospital. The two passengers in the backseat, another adult and a child, were transported to a nearby hospital via EMS.
