According to Texas DPS, a 16-year old female driver of a 2014 Dodge Ram Pick-up was traveling westbound on FM 1783, when she crossed over the center line on a curve and collided head on with the McGregor resident's 1997 Honda Civic.

The 16-year old driver was transported to Coryell Memorial Hospital with non-incapacitating injuries.

Texas DPS said in the release that it would like to remind drivers to limit distractions while driving, as it increases the probability of being involved in a traffic crash.
