Bodies Found At Rest Stop In Van Zandt County

Authorities suspect carbon monoxide poisoning may have led to the deaths of two people found last night parked in a pickup truck at a rest stop in Van Zandt County.

A DPS trooper was called out to the rest stop after witnesses say the truck had been parked since early Saturday morning.

Along with the bodies, authorities say they found a generator inside the truck that had apparently been running for more than a day.

The identities of the victims have not yet been released. Their bodies have been taken to Dallas for autopsy.

Authorities remind you that if you are going to use a generator while travelling in a truck, RV, or tent, you need to make sure you have enough ventilation, to prevent carbon monoxide from getting inside.
