DPS troopers say an SUV traveling on FM 92, ran a stop sign and slammed into a logging truck on Highway 190. The logging truck hurled the SUV into a pick-up truck.

Five of the six in the SUV were killed, including 4 adults, all in their seventies, and a 7-year-old girl. Another 13-year-old girl is in critical condition at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston.

No one else was injured.
