Two teenagers airlifted to hospital following crash near Waxahachie

Multiple agencies responded to a serious crash late this afternoon on FM 813 approximately half a mile west of Gibson Road near Waxahachie in Ellis County. Two vehicles were involved in a near head-on collision.

DPS troopers say a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old male and occupied by a 17-year-old female was traveling north on FM 813. The 16-year-old driver attempted to pass a vehicle in a no-passing zone. As the vehicle drifted into the oncoming lane of travel, it struck a second vehicle traveling in the opposite direction.

Both teenager occupants of the vehicle at fault were transported by medical helicopters to Methodist Dallas hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the second vehicle, who has been identified as a 69-year-old male, was transported by ambulance to Methodist Hospital in Dallas with serious injuries.

The investigation is still ongoing at this time.
