AUSTIN (AP) -- A fourth man has died following a Friday crash on U.S. 290 east of Dripping Springs in Hays County.

The Austin American Statesman reported Sunday that the Texas Department of Public Safety said 34-year-old Antonio Vasquez died of injuries sustained in the crash at 1:22 p.m.

Vasquez joins 36-year-old Oscar Ibarra-Gomez, 35-year-old Jesus Raul Arreola-Jimenez and Johnny Ibarra, 21, all of Austin, who died at the scene.

Investigators say Ibarra-Gomez was driving east on U.S. 290 with four passengers in a Dodge pickup.

He apparently ran a red light and struck a Honda Accord that was making a left turn from westbound U.S. 290.

The driver of the Honda, 39-year-old Richard Dwyer, of Austin, received minor injuries. The name of a fifth occupant in the truck wasn't released.
