HILLSBORO, Texas (AP) - A six-month old baby was killed when a van carrying a family lost control on Interstate 35 in central Texas and flipped over, injuring 13 others.
Texas Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Lisa Block says the accident happened around 2 a.m. north of Hillsboro.
Block says the van was pulling a trailer and the passengers told authorities they were traveling from Dallas to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, for a family reunion.
Block says it isn't known yet what caused the van's driver to lose control.
Block says five of the injured were flown to hospitals in the Dallas area. Eight others were taken by ambulance.
