Crash On Texas Highway Claims 4th Life

AUSTIN (September 16, 2013)--A fourth man has died after a two-vehicle crash Friday on U.S. 290 east of Dripping Springs in Hays County.

Antonio Vasquez, 4, died at a hospital of injuries he received in the crash, authorities said.

Oscar Ibarra-Gomez, 36, Jesus Raul Arreola-Jimenez, 35, and Johnny Ibarra, 21, all of Austin, died at the scene of the crash Friday.

Investigators say Ibarra-Gomez was driving east on U.S. 290 with four passengers in a Dodge pickup when he evidently ran a red light.

The pickup struck a Honda Accord whose driver was making a left turn from westbound U.S. 290.

The driver of the Honda, Richard Dwyer, 39, of Austin, received minor injuries.

The name of the fifth occupant in the truck wasn't released.
