    Authorities say five people have been killed and seven injured in a three-vehicle accident in South Texas.

    The Department of Public Safety says the crash happened around 11 a.m. Saturday on U.S. 59, 5 miles northeast of Victoria.

    Sgt. Ruben San Miguel says investigators are trying to determine why a northbound van hit the left rear of a northbound semi pulling a flatbed trailer. The van then struck a southbound pickup truck.

    Five people in the van died at the scene -- the female driver, two men and two children. Five others in the van were injured.
