An accident Wednesday on Highway 75, south of Park Road 40, has claimed four lives. The accident occurred just before 5 p.m.

DPS Huntsville Trooper Floyd Garner told Bluebonnet News that a black four-door Ford was traveling south on Highway 75, and a white four-door Fusion was going north on 75.

Garner said the driver of the Ford tried to pass in a no-passing zone, and was at the bottom of a hill. When the Ford got to the top of the hill, Garner said it hit the Fusion head-on.
