Five members of a College Station family were killed when a pickup truck slammed head-on into their truck. The crash happened about 5 p.m. Thursday on the Old San Antonio Road, six miles east of Normangee.

The Texas Department of Public Safety identifies the dead as 41-year-old Ismael Perez, 37-year-old Minerva Perez, 7-year-old Jenette Perez, 5-year-old Celeste Perez and 3-year-old Josephine Perez.

The DPS reports the Perezes' pickup truck was traveling east on OSR when a pickup truck driven by 28-year-old Amy Wise of Centerville drifted across the center of the road. Wise's truck slammed head-on into the Perezes' truck.

Wise was taken to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Bryan with non-life-threatening injuries.

The DPS says the adults in the Perezes' truck were wearing seat belts, but the children weren't.
