The victim in yesterday's fatal accident was a University of Texas-Dallas student.
Sarah Magri, 20, was killed instantly in the wreck south of Hearne on Highway 6.
A brown SUV with five occupants, including some children, was travelling south when it collided with a truck. Authorities believe the SUV was following too close. It then swerved into the northbound lanes and into Magri's car.
Her passenger and the five people in the SUV were taken to hospitals.
Magri was a senior at UT-Dallas, but was listed as a Katy resident.
