Five people, including two children, were killed in a traffic accident in southeastern Texas in the US, Texas Department of Public Safety has said, APA reports citing Xinhua news agency.

A woman driving a van in Victoria County, about 200 km southwest of downtown Houston, along with two men and two children, died on Saturday at the scene. Seven others were rushed to nearby hospitals, according to the authorities.

According to the department, the van carrying 10 people was trying to get on a ramp when it was clipped by an 18-wheeler. This sent the van over the median into oncoming traffic, causing the van to be then struck by a pickup.

It was unclear yet what caused the crash.
