Three killed, one injured in crash on SH 21 in Bastrop County

The collision involved three different vehicles.

BASTROP COUNTY, Texas — Three people were killed and one was injured after a crash in Bastrop County on State Highway 21 near Voss Parkway.

According to the Texas DPS, a Ford van towing a homemade trailer was traveling southwest on SH 21 as it attempted to turn left into a gas station parking lot. Meanwhile, a truck tractor was traveling northeast.

As the van failed to yield right of way, it collided with the truck, causing one passenger in the van, occupied by three males, to be ejected. All three were pronounced dead on scene.

After the collision, the truck tractor then traveled off the south side of the highway, striking an electric pole. The debris then struck a Chevrolet pickup that was traveling in the parking lot at the same time.

According to nearby surveillance video obtained by KVUE, the van appears to hydroplane while trying to stop for a turning vehicle, not making a left turn in front of the truck as reported by the DPS. The DPS said its preliminary report will be updated within 10 days as its investigation continues.

The truck driver was transported to an undisclosed medical facility in Bastrop.

The crash occurred around 3:10 p.m. on Monday.
