At least four people were killed and nine injured in a horrific crash Tuesday afternoon on State Highway 121 in Collin County.

Authorities confirmed five vehicles were involved in the crash at State Highway 121 near County Road 528, just outside of Anna. Troopers were called to the scene shortly after 4 p.m.

According to Texas Highway Patrol, four people were pronounced dead at the scene. Nine people were sent to the hospital with varying injuries. All of those injured were sent either to Medical City McKinney or Medical City Plano.

Officials closed down the road as they continue to investigate the crash scene.

An initial investigation indicates a Pontiac Grand Prix was driving northbound on Highway 121 when it slowed down for an “undetermined reason,” officials say. It set off a series of spinouts and head-on collisions.

The Pontiac was then rear-ended by a Dodge pickup, causing the Pontiac to spin into oncoming traffic and hit a Ford Focus traveling in the other direction.

The Ford Focus then spun into oncoming traffic and was struck by a Ford F450 utility truck.

A Subaru heading southbound was also struck by the Pontiac and rolled into a ditch.

Identities have not been released at this time.
