Burnet County, TX -- February 26, 2023, three people were killed and four were injured following an accident where multiple vehicles crashed.
Authorities said that the crash happened in the area of Highway 71 and East Trail Road at around 3:00 a.m. The details are unclear at this time. Details say that a Ford F-350 "struck" an oncoming Hyundai. As a result, three people in the Hyundai sustained fatal injuries. At least four others from the Ford were taken to area hospitals. No further information is available at this time.
Early in the morning like this, a head-on collision raises all kinds of red flags. But without having the facts, I wouldn't encourage anyone to jump to conclusions. Things like medical emergencies, tire blowouts, mechanical defects, and other unpredictable issues may not be as common, but they're worth considering as much as things like fatigue, distraction, or alcohol.
To think of all the families lives turned upside down because of this awful event is just heart-wrenching. That's why I hope authorities here are at least given the time and equipment they need to leave nothing to question. The least anyone could do for a family in a situation like this is ensure they get the answers they deserve.
