SOUTHMAYD, Texas (KTEN) — One person died and three others were hospitalized after a crash at a Southmayd intersection on Thursday afternoon.

Police said a blue van and a white pickup truck collided at the junction of State Highways 56 and 289.

Three individuals in the truck suffered what were described as major injuries.

A senior citizen in the van was pronounced dead at the scene. The identities of the victims were not released, and the cause of the crash remains under investigation.

A collision at the same intersection on July 7 claimed the life of a motorcycle operator.

"TxDOT has been notified about the intersection, and they said they're going to look into it," said Southmayd police Chief Chad McKee. "Since I've been here — since 2010 — this makes the third fatality at this location."
