An investigation found that the pickup truck hit the SUV head-on causing numerous injuries to passengers in both vehicles, according to authorities.
Five of the victims who died were riding in the SUV, The Texas Department of Public Safety said in a statement.
They included two children and the driver, The Associated Press reported.
Another young passenger in the SUV was taken to a San Antonio hospital in critical condition.
In the Ford F-150 pickup, a male driver and passenger were pronounced dead on the scene.
Their names and ages have not yet been released.
No one else was involved in the crash, according to DPS, which didn’t immediately release any more details.
It comes just weeks after two cheerleaders were killed when a police officer ran a red light in Brusly, Louisiana, earlier this month.
Maggie Dunn, 17, and Caroline Gill, 16, were killed while Dunn’s brother, Liam was injured when Addis police officer, David Cauthron, 42, smashed into their car.
Cauthron, who was in pursuit of a car thief, was going about 86 miles per hour and didn’t hit his brakes before the crash, according to his GPS, WBRZ reports.
