CANTON (AP) – Three people have died in a fiery head-on traffic accident about 50 miles southeast of Dallas.

Van Zandt County authorities say the crash happened Wednesday afternoon south of Canton.

Justice of the Peace Don Kirkpatrick says a car going north on Texas Highway 19 went into the southbound lane and hit a pickup truck.

The car driver and both people in the truck, which burned, were dead at the scene.

The Department of Public Safety identified the car driver as 19-year-old Sebastian Ostoin of Canton. The other driver was 43-year-old Francisco Puga of Athens, whose passenger was identified as 60-year-old Kathleen Shue.
