Augustin Hernandez, 32, of Deer Park also died in Friday's accident.

According to the Department of Public Safety, the accident happened around 3 p.m. Friday a mile north of FM 2154 on Highway 6.

Authorities say a car was stopped in one of the southbound lanes waiting to make a left turn onto a private drive.

Two cars were behind that vehicle when a dump truck going south hit its breaks, skid and slid into those three.

The passenger car with the three teens was headed north on Highway 6, and was unable to avoid the crash.

A sixth vehicle took evasive action and avoided the chaos.

Two other people involved in the accident were injured and released.

One person walked away unharmed.
