Three people - including two teens - were hurt in a two-vehicle crash Saturday on U.S. Highway 59 south.

Larry Lancaster, 69, of Goliad, was driving north on the highway in a Dodge pickup while two teenage girls from Victoria - both 16 - were in a Ford Taurus going north.

As the girls attempted to make a left on Coletoville Road near the Raisin Windmill, they failed to stop at a yield sign, colliding with Lancaster's vehicle, according to Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Sgt. Gabe Huber.

Lancaster was taken to Citizens Medical Center along with one of the teens while the other female was taken to DeTar Hospital Navarro. All three were thought to have injuries that were not life-threatening, Huber said.

The names of the teens were not released because of their ages.

Huber said citations were not issued at the scene because the accident remains under investigation.
