    Three people were killed Thursday night in a car crash in Hunt County.

    Troopers with the Texas Department of Public Safety were called to the scene of a head-on collision at about 7:40 p.m.

    Investigators later learned that 44-year-old Brett Vick, of Greenville, was driving south on U.S. Highway 69 when he crossed into the northbound lanes and struck a vehicle head-on.

    Vick's Chevrolet collided with a Ford driven by 65-year-old Ouida Richards of Celeste.

    Vick, Richards and her passenger, 84-year-old Melba Compto, all died at the scene.

    Investigators have not said what caused Vick to stray from his lane.
