VICTORIA, Texas — Five people were killed and seven others hospitalized after a three-vehicle crash in South Texas on Saturday.

Sgt. Ruben San Miguel, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, said the crash occurred at 10:56 a.m. Saturday on U.S. Highway 59, five miles northeast of Victoria. 

San Miguel said there were 10 passengers total in the van. The passengers are all related and were traveling south for vacation, San Miguel added.

San Miguel said a semi pulling a flatbed trailer was traveling northbound on the highway before it was hit from behind the left rear by a 2016 Ford van.

The Ford van then went over the grassy median before hitting a 2015 Ford F-250 pickup that was traveling southbound head on. 

The female driver of the van, two adult male passengers, and one boy and girl were found dead on scene, San Miguel said.

Members and relatives of Thai and foreign Buddhist devotees circumambulate during the International Dhammadayada Ordination Program, an international mass ordination ceremony held to mark the Buddhist Lent at Wat Phra Dhammakaya temple in Pathum Thani province, on the outskirts of Bangkok, Thailand on July 20, 2019. The ordination program offers foreigners the opportunity to be ordained as Buddhist monks and study Dharma, or Buddhist doctine, and meditation. The Buddhist Lent or ‘Khao Pansa’ is a three-month long period that begins on the first day after the full moon of the eighth lunar month. During this period, Buddhist monks must remain in one location, typically a monastery or on temple grounds, where they engage in meditation and prayer. Many lay people also choose to give up meats, alcohol, and engage in other ascetic practices during Khao Pansa. Diego Azubel, EPA-EFE

  • Volunteers and staff help during the biennial round-up of swans at Abbotsbury Swannary on July 20, 2019 in Abbotsbury, England. The Abbotsbury Swan Round-up is held every two years on The Fleet Lagoon in Dorset. It is timed to coincide with the annual wing-moult of the swans, as this renders them flightless for several weeks each summer. It's a unique opportunity to record their ring numbers, apply rings to newly arrived swans and to give them all a thorough health check. Abbotsbury Swannery is spread over a 25 acre site and is home to the only managed colony of Mute Swans in the world. Established during the 1040's by Benedictine Monks. It is now under the stewardship of the Ilchester Estates.11 of 11
