Goliad, Texas -

Authorities say a pickup truck has crashed in South Texas, killing 10 people in the vehicle and injuring 12.

Louann Presas, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, says the crash occurred about 7pm CDT on Sunday near Berclair when the truck ran off the highway and crashed into some trees. The unincorporated community is about 160 kilometres south-east of San Antonio.

Presas says all the victims were in the same Ford F-250 pickup.

She says the extent of the injuries to the surviving victims wasn't immediately clear. Crash investigators were still at the scene around 11pm CDT.

A county sheriff's dispatcher deferred comment to a department spokesperson, who did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press. - Sapa-AP
