Two people are dead and 14 others are hospitalized with injuries after the van they were riding to Mexico rolled over on Interstate 35 southwest of San Antonio. Investigators suspect a blowout in the right rear tire in the crash about 3 a.m. Monday near the town of Natalia, said Lt. Steven Tellez, a Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman in San Antonio.

The crash scene is about 30 miles southwest of San Antonio. Tellez says the van was carrying 16 members of a Fort Worth-area family to Mexico for vacation when the crash happened.

Troopers say those killed were a 15-year-old boy and a male adult. The 14 others injured were taken to different San Antonio hospitals. Three were injured badly enough to be airlifted to hospitals.

No identities have been released.
