Four people, including a 2-year-old girl, were hospitalized Tuesday afternoon following a two-vehicle crash in Yorktown.

At 3:27 p.m., a 1995 Honda Civic traveling west on 12th Street apparently ran a stop sign and collided with a 1994 Chevrolet pickup traveling south on state Highway 119, said Yorktown Police Officer Richard Ramirez.

The driver of the Honda, Nicholas Schultz, 22, and two passengers, Kali Hamel, 19, and a 2-year-old girl, were taken by helicopter to University Hospital in San Antonio.

Both adults were in critical condition as of Wednesday afternoon, said a hospital representative.

The girl was in a car seat in the back seat of the car, said Ramirez. The condition of the child was not available.

The driver of the pickup, Adam Simons, 29 of Louisiana, was taken by Yorktown EMS ambulance to Citizens Medical Center in Victoria, where he was treated and released.

The car ended up about 250 feet from the crash site in a field on the west side of the highway, and the truck rolled over at least once, landing on its side, said Ramirez.

The crash is still under investigation. No citations have been issued, Ramirez said.
