The Department of Public Safety tell us that a Dodge pickup truck traveling on HWY 12 approximately 4 miles west of San Marcos attempted to pass a vehicle in a no passing zone and crashed head-on with a Toyota Camry.

Two people, a male and female riding in the Camry died on the scene.  The driver of the Dodge truck also died on the scene.

3 other persons were transported to South Austin Medical Center.  No further updates on their status are available at this time.

DPS is currently investigating and FOX 7 will bring you more information as it becomes available to us.
