The accident happened around 12:30 pm on US Highway 83, just outside of Garner State Park. 14 senior citizens were on board a bus from First Baptist Church in New Braunfels, Texas, just returning from a three day retreat. A pickup truck veered over the center lines and crashed head on into the bus.

Twelve people were pronounced dead at the scene. One passenger from the bus was rushed to a hospital, but tragically was pronounced dead shortly after. One other passenger and the driver of the pickup truck remain hospitalized. The accident remains under investigation at this time to determine cause and liability.
