4 people killed in head-on crash in Walker County
Four people died in a violent head-on crash Wednesday south of Huntsville in Walker County.
According to the Department of Public Safety, it happened just before 5:00 p.m. on Highway 75 south of Park Road 40.
DPS Trooper Erik Burse says a black four-door Ford was traveling south on Highway 75, and a white four-door Fusion was going north on 75.
Burse said the driver of the Ford tried to pass in a no-passing zone and was at the bottom of a hill. When the Ford got to the top of the hill, Garner said it hit the Fusion head-on.
There is a 5th person involved who was airlifted to a Houston hospital in critical condition.
DPS says they are having a hard time identifying the victims because most of the people involved in the crash did not have any I.D. on them.
