PLANO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – At least two people are dead after an SUV crashed into a gravel hauler truck on Highway 75 in Plano Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Police said the driver of the gravel hauler and one occupant of the SUV were pronounced dead at the scene. The other occupant of the SUV was ejected and was taken to the hospital in unknown condition, police said.
It’s unclear which of the occupants of the SUV was the driver. The identities of the three victims have not yet been released.
Highway 75 remains closed as officials continue to clean up and investigate.
