Two people were killed Wednesday morning in a crash on FM 2004 in Hitchcock, police said.
The crash occurred on the highway near the Galveston-Brazoria county line about 9:30 a.m., police said.
Police released few details about the crash on Wednesday.
A pickup truck driving north on the highway swerved as it tried to avoid a car that had moved into its lane while coming from the opposite direction, police said.
As it swerved, it struck a white work van head-on, police said.
The two people inside the truck were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The driver of the van was taken to a hospital, police said.
Police did not immediately release the identities of the two people killed.
Parts of the highway were shut down for about four hours as investigators gathered information and cleaned up crash debris.
