ANGELINA COUNTY —
A three-vehicle accident claimed the lives of two people Tuesday afternoon on U.S. Highway 69 north of Zavalla, according to Angelina County Sheriff's Office Lt. Bryan Holley.
A silver Honda, driven by a man, was northbound on U.S. 69, and a Volkswagen Beetle, driven by a 19-year-old girl, was southbound on U.S. 69, according to Holley.
The Honda came into the southbound lane and collided head-on with the Volkswagen, Holley said.
The driver of the Honda and Volkswagen were both dead at the scene, Holley said, and both had to be cut out of their vehicles.
An older gold car, driven by David Fields, 53, of Woodville, was also involved. His car was struck by the Honda. Fields had minor injuries and refused transport, according to Holley.
