Head-on Crash on Highway 141

KINGSVILLE - Driver fatigue could have been a factor in an early morning accident near Kingsville

The accident occurred a little after 7 a.m. on State Highway 141 West of Kingsville.

According to state troopers at the scene, a male driving eastbound on the highway apparently fell asleep at the wheel veering off onto oncoming traffic and colliding head-on with a van traveling the opposite direction.

A 24-year-old woman was the driver of the van.

The extent of the injuries sustained by either driver is still unknown. One person was air lifted to Spohn Memorial Hospital in Corpus Christi.
