In the early morning of March 5, 2018, a tragic accident involving two vehicles took place in Bosque County, Texas. The accident occurred on State Highway 6 near Clifton and killed five people, including three children who were students at Valley Mills Independent School District.
Troopers investigated the scene of the accident and found a 1999 Nissan passenger van and a 2014 Ford pickup truck involved in the accident. Both vehicles were apparently traveling south when the driver of the Nissan attempted to make a U-turn in front of the Ford truck. The driver of the Nissan pulled over to the shoulder of the highway and slowed before making the U-turn, but as she attempted to make the turn, the driver of the Ford truck collided with her vehicle.
The driver of the Nissan was pronounced dead at the scene along with three of her passengers, a 66-year-old woman and two young girls. The third young girl who was also a passenger in the Nissan was taken to a local hospital where she was also pronounced dead. The three children were headed to school when the accident took place. The driver of the Ford truck was injured in the accident but did not suffer any severe injuries. Investigators said that no charges are being considered as a result of the crash.
