Three people died in Texas earlier this week in a crash involving a DOT Foods semi.
According to a Dot Transportation, Inc. (DTI) statement, the crash happened Tuesday afternoon in the northbound lane of Highway 69 near the Hunt and Fannin County line. That is about 50 miles northeast of Dallas.
Police told CBS station KXII a 32-year-old woman, a 37-year-old man and a 13-month-old girl were killed on impact in the head-on crash.
Their SUV veered into the path of the DOT Foods truck, according to the DTI statement.
KXII reports the driver of the truck, 39-year-old Jeremy Wion, was treated for minor injuries.
DTI says their preliminary investigation and reports from the Texas Highway Patrol investigators at the scene indicate that this was a tragic accident.
“Our deepest sympathies go out to the family of those killed in the crash,” the DTI statement went on to say. “Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult time.”
