SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - Traffic inched by the scene on Interstate 20, this morning, just west of Hide-a-Way after a vehicle ran off the road. DPS troopers tell KLTV it appears none of the deceased victims were wearing seatbelts.

Two other people were taken to a local hospital. It's believed the driver lost control after blowing a tire. The out of control vehicle swerved off the highway and into a pine tree.

Authorities say the passengers were construction workers, traveling from the Fort Worth area.
