JACKSONVILLE - Four people were killed when the car in which they were riding slammed into another vehicle and a semi-truck while on the wrong side of an East Texas highway.
The crash happened Saturday morning on U.S. 79, a little more than 5 miles east of Jacksonville. Cherokee County Constable Eddie Lee tells KLTV-TV of Tyler that the vehicle with the four people in it was on the wrong side of the road when it sideswiped a sport utility vehicle and slammed head-on into the truck.
No other injuries were reported. No identities have been released. Trooper Jean Dark of the Texas Department of Public Safety says it's not yet clear why the car was on the wrong side of the two-lane highway.
