CRANDALL, Texas — According to police, two people were killed in a wrong-way collision on U.S. Highway 175 last night. The victim, Juan Correas, has been identified by his family member and memorial services have been planned.
According to inforney.com, several drivers were run off the highway before the wrong-way driver collided with another vehicle in Crandall — entrapping both drivers and causing the vehicles to catch on fire.

The Crandall Fire Department, Kaufman Fire Department, and Seagoville Fire Department responded to the crash along with the Crandall Police Department, Kaufman Police Department, and Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities are currently investigating whether drugs or alcohol were a factor.
