CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A major accident on FM 70 and FM 1355, near Bishop, sent three men to the hospital just after 7 a.m. Thursday.

Department of Public Safety troopers said a transport van heading to McAllen had attempted to pass another vehicle in a no-passing zone as a Baker Hughes truck was traveling in the opposite direction. Both the truck and the van tried to swerve to avoid the accident, but the van hit part of the truck.

"The driver of the pickup and the driver of the van were HALO flighted," DPS Trooper Gary Cornett said. "Both of them and the passenger of the van were taken to Kleberg, and the other two were transported to Memorial."

Cornett said the driver of the van was cited for causing the accident.
