A mother and her three children died in a fiery crash
when their sports utility vehicle slammed into a tree along U.S. 59 in
Live Oak County Sunday morning.

The single-vehicle wreck happened about 7 a.m. on U.S. 59 about 12 miles northeast of George West, the county seat, according to the Department of Public Safety.

Troopers said the victims died at the scene.

The
family, from George West, was traveling southwest on U.S. 59 in a GMC
Yukon when the woman apparently lost control of the SUV, veered into the
median and smashed into a tree, troopers said. The SUV caught fire.

Troopers
said investigators were trying to determine what caused the crash. The
weather was clear and the road was dry at the time of the wreck.

Troopers are investigating the case.

George West is about 210 miles southwest of Houston.
