Death Toll Now 13 In Uvalde County Crash

Thirteen people were killed and two were injured in a crash between a church bus and a pickup truck, the Texas Department of Public Safety said Wednesday.

The Uvalde County Sheriff's Office said the major crash caused the closing of Highway 83 near Garner State Park around 2 p.m.

A DPS spokesperson said Wednesday evening that the pickup truck veered into the oncoming lane and collided with the bus. It had not been determined what caused the driver to cross into the other lane.

First Baptist Church of New Braunfels said on its website that one of its buses was involved in the crash. The bus was reportedly carrying church members who were returning from a retreat.
