GOLIAD, Texas (AP) — A spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety says at least two children are among the 11 people killed when a pickup truck left the highway and crashed into trees in rural South Texas.

Investigators are looking into what caused Sunday night's one-vehicle crash that also left 12 people injured, some with life-threatening injuries.

Officials say the Ford F-250 pickup was heading north on U.S. 59 when the accident happened. They say 23 people were loaded inside the truck's cab and bed.
