U.S. 70 Fatal Accident

It was a horrific scene north of Pampa on Wednesday.

Five people are killed when a van slams into the load of a truck.

DPS troopers at the scene tell us the van was travelling south on highway 70 when it crossed the center line.

The driver of the semi carrying a wide load was pulling off of the road to avoid the van but the driver crashed into the front edge of the load.

We're told the lone survivor in the van, an eight-year-old, was transported to a local hospital.
