7 KILLED WHEN CAR CLIPS TOWED VEHICLE IN TEXAS.

Van Horn, Texas - A car clipped a vehicle being towed by a tractor-trailer on an interstate in west Texas on Saturday, killing seven people.
A 1998 Pontiac was trying to pass a truck that was towing a 1994 Nissan in which four California residents were riding. Both were eastbound on Interstate 10, Department of Public Safety spokesman Mike Cox said.
The Pontiac cut too close, and the truck swerved onto the shoulder of the highway, Cox said. The Pontiac collided with the Nissan, which broke loose. Everyone in both vehicles died in the 2 p.m. accident. All were wearing seat belts except PABLO EL SUKIS, 5, of El Paso, who was ejected, Cox said.
