ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

A horrific head-on collision that occurred south of Lufkin on US Highway 69 Tuesday morning claimed the lives of two people and injured a teenage boy.

According to a press release from the Texas Department of Public Safety, Angelina County DPS troopers responded to a two-vehicle accident on Highway 69 just south of Lufkin's Spring Lake Drive at about 7:59 a.m. Tuesday.
