Two people are dead and two others, including a 14-month old, are in critical condition after a head-on crash early Friday morning on Interstate 45 in Freestone County near Dew, just south of Teague.

Officials said the driver of a 2000 Toyota SUV was northbound in the southbound lane when he hit an oncoming 2001 Chrysler minivan almost head-on.

The driver of a minivan and one passenger died at the scene.

The 14-mont-old survived and was taken to McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple.

The Toyota driver was in critical condition at Scott & White Hospital in Temple.

The investigation is ongoing.
