A six-month old baby girl was killed when a van carrying a family lost control on Interstate 35 in central Texas and flipped over, injuring 13 others. Texas Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Lisa Block says the accident happened around 2 a.m. north of Hillsboro.

Block says troopers think a tire blowout caused the van to lose control.

The girl who died has been identified as Evelyn Kate Garcia.

Block says the van was pulling a trailer and the passengers told authorities they were traveling from Dallas to Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, for a family reunion.

Block says five of the injured were flown to hospitals in the Dallas area. Eight others were taken by ambulance.
