Individuals with the Dove Creek Volunteer Fire Department said they were unsure about fatalities as apparently a truck hauling a trailer down US 67 lost its trailer and a car hit the trailer.

The Department of Public Safety is investigating the crash and San Angelo LIVE! has reached out for more information. Those traveling will not be able to drive US 67 and will have to find another way.
