According to DPS, the Frontier was headed east when it crossed into the west lanes of U.S. 80 and struck the F-150 and Mazda. The Buick also struck the Mazda during the collision.
One person was killed at the scene.
The driver and passenger of the F-150 were both transported to a Baylor hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

Texas Is an At-Fault State
In Texas, drivers involved in car accidents always include someone who is at-fault, meaning that there is an individual who caused the accident to occur. In the case above, the Frontier lost control and resulted in a deadly four-vehicle wreck. Because of this, the insurance company in contact with the driver of the Frontier could face claims of wrongful death and personal injury. However, insurance companies are only looking out for their best interests.
