MCLENNAN COUNTY -- A man is in critical condition, a woman is in serious but stable condition and two women are dead following a devastating car crash early this morning.
The accident happened just before 6 am on Cotton Belt Parkway near McGregor.
DPS Troopers tell us they believe the car was traveling at a high rate of speed, left the road for some reason and smashed into a tree, with enough force to bring the trunk into the backseat.
But why the accident took place is still under investigation.
"I don't know if the driver had a medical condition, fell asleep, or things like that. And at that early morning hours, you know, there's no breaking or anything coming off the roadways," DPS Trooper, D.L. Wilson said.
Troopers tell us the victims in the car did not have identification on them.
But they say they may have been in their 20s.
The car was a 2007 Saturn Ion.
