2 Children Injured in Truck Accident on I-10 in Colorado County, TX
Colorado County, TX — October 21, 2023, two children were injured in a truck accident just after 12:15 in the morning along Interstate 10.
According to reports, a 40-year-old woman and two children—one age four and the other age six—were traveling in a westbound Honda in the right-hand lane of I-10 approaching the C.R. 253 overpass when the accident occurred.
