Two children and one adult were killed Sunday in a head-on crash on U.S. Highway 380, Denton police say.

A total of six people were in two vehicles that were involved in the crash at about 11:43 a.m. on US 380 and Rockhill Road, officials said.

Two additional vehicles were impacted, but the people in those vehicles were uninjured, police said.

In one vehicle, first responders found one adult who died at the crash scene and a second adult who was hospitalized. Two adults and two children were transported from the other vehicle.

The two children — a 12-month-old and a 5-year-old — died at the hospital, police said.

One of the hospitalized adults was reported to be in stable condition Sunday evening, and the other two adults were in critical condition, police said.

“Our hearts go out to everyone involved in this tragedy, and we ask that the community keep everyone involved in their thoughts as well,” police said in a statement.

Officials have not determined the cause of the crash.

US 380 was closed in the area for several hours while first responders worked. Westbound traffic was shut down at Fishtrap Road and eastbound traffic is shut down at North Mayhill Road, police said.

Several other law enforcement agencies were helping with traffic control.
