GLEN ROSE (July 19, 2013)--A car in which five members of a Texas Panhandle family were riding veered head-on into North Texas family’s minivan Friday afternoon west of Glen Rose, killing four and injuring seven others.
The crash happened at around 1:15 p.m. Friday 11 miles west of Glen Rose on U.S. 67, an undivided four-lane highway with a 70-mile-per-hour mph speed limit, the Department of Public Safety said.
