DRIPPING SPRING, Texas (AP) — Five people are dead following a two-car crash on a rainy Texas highway on Mother's Day.

The Texas Department of Public Safety tells the Austin American-Statesman it happened Sunday afternoon near the town of Dripping Springs, about 20 miles southwest of Austin.

Officials say a Lincoln was heading east on U.S. 290 when the driver lost control and veered into the westbound lane, where it was hit by a Buick. Authorities say two people in the Buick and three people in the Lincoln were killed.

Austin's KXAN-TV reports one person in each car survived the crash. Both have been hospitalized.

Authorities haven't said what caused the accident.
