Crash kills two in Albany

Sun glare may have contributed

ALBANY, Texas - A terrible crash killed two people on Highway 6, south of Albany, on Monday morning.

A Texas Department of Safety spokesperson said a Dodge Neon struck a vehicle that was yielding to a semi with a wide load. The neon then crashed into the on-coming semi. The car's fuel tank ruptured and caught on fire with the two victims inside.

Trooper Daniel Hawthorne said the two may have died on impact and before the fire started.

The victims have not been identified. No one else was hurt.

Sun glare may have been the reason the Neon's driver didn't stop.
