Teen Killed in Head-On Collision with Tanker Truck

Police said a 17-year-old girl was killed in a head-on collision with a tanker truck in rural Johnson County Sunday afternoon.

An SUV traveling east on U.S. 67 crossed the median and struck a tanker truck traveling west near County Road 1120 southwest of Cleburne at 12:53 p.m., according to DPS Trooper Dub Gillum.

The tanker careened across the median into the eastbound lanes of U.S. 67, striking a pickup with a man and a woman inside. Neither the driver of the tanker nor the passengers of the pickup truck were seriously wounded.

The SUV driver — later identified as Jean Marie Kramer, of Burleson — was found dead at the scene, Gillum said.

Westbound lanes of U.S. 67 were closed to traffic as investigators cleared the scene.
