The car was traveling south in a 2001 Chevy Blazer when the crash occurred at 8:13 p.m., said Victoria County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Ward Wyatt.
Sgt. Ruben San Miguel said the car rolled over and crossed the median into the northbound lane, where it became engulfed in flames.
Sgt. San Miguel said the crash appeared to be caused by a blown-out back tire.
Fire Captain David Pillar said a fifth person left the scene in a private vehicle before responders arrived.
