Texas husband/wife traveling for Thanksgiving in fatal accident

The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year in Texas and across the country. It also means that drivers should exercise extra caution, since there are typically more cars on the road. Sadly, a fatal accident occurred on Interstate 37 in Live Oak County between a Ford Mustang and a tractor-trailer. The young couple in the Mustang was heading north to visit relatives in Dallas for the holiday.
