Just before midnight on January 16, the Texas Department of Public Safety responded to the scene of a motor vehicle collision on Farm to Market Road 349. Reports indicate that a 17-year-old male was driving a 2004 Nissan Altima when his vehicle collided with an 18-wheeler at the intersection of US Highway 259.

Two other victims inside the Altima, who were identified as a 16-year-old male and a 17-year-old female were both injured and transported to Good Shepard Medical Center for treatment.
