Deadly Accident On Highway 82

Posted: Updated:

Three people are dead after a late afternoon accident on Friday.

The crash happened shortly after 3:00p.m. on Highway 82, just 10 miles outside of Seymour. DPS Troopers said the driver of a Chevy Equinox was going west in the east bound lane of the highway and ran into a Mustang going eastbound, attempting to pass a vehicle. They also said the Equinox burst into flames.

DPS told us the driver of the Equinox was 79 year old Ann Marie Thomas from Wichita Falls. There were two people inside the Mustang, 19 year old Bethany Loper from Holliday and 17 year old Brittney Woollis from Wichita Falls. It's still unclear who was the driver of that car.

The eastbound lane of Highway 82 is closed for about a mile near the accident sight.

Authorities for Baylor County, Seymour Police and Fire, and DPS are still on the scene investigating the crash.
