Four people are dead after a three-vehicle crash outside of Teague Wednesday afternoon.

Officials from the Texas Department of Public Safety said the wreck happened around 5:15 p.m. on Highway 84, a mile east of Teague.

DPS believes Michael James Jackson was traveling at a high rate of speed around a curve and drove into the opposite lane and hit a Chevrolet Tahoe.

Linda Huffman, Janice Turner and Martha Turner were inside the Tahoe when it spun and hit a separate Chevrolet Silverado, carrying Joshua Thompson.

Both the Tahoe and Silverado went into the ditch. Officials said the Tahoe flipped once and landed upright. 

Jackson, Huffman and Janice Turner were pronounced dead at the scene.

Martha Turner was taken to the hospital in Fairfield where she was pronounced dead.

The driver of the Silverado, Joshua Thompson, was treated for injuries and released.
