Three people were killed after a wrong-way driver hit their vehicle head-on on Sunday morning on U.S. Highway 175.

It was just after 1 a.m. when officials were notified of the wrong-way crash on eastbound U.S. Highway 175, on the Kaufman County side of Seagoville in Texas.

A blue Chevrolet pickup truck was discovered. The wrong-way driver had been located and attempted to illuminate the vehicle with spotlights in an attempt to get the driver’s attention but the driver accelerated speed and continued.

The wrong-way driver crashed head-on with a Toyota sedan near the U.S. Highway 175 intersection with Farm-to-Market (FM) 1389. A second pickup truck also hit the Toyota sedan after the initial impact.

Two adult females and a young child in a Toyota sedan were killed.

The adult male driver of the wrong-way vehicle was hospitalized in critical condition.

The crash is being investigated by Seagoville Police Department.
