BELL COUNTY, Texas — An 18-year-old has died in a two-vehicle crash. It happened just before 11 p.m. on Sunday.

Joan Rivera, 22, was driving south along S Central Ave in a 2004 Infiniti SUV when the two vehicles crashed in the intersection. 

Garcia was the only person in the Dodge. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace G.W. Ivey. Rivera was in the car with an adult woman and three children. The woman and two of the children were rushed to local hospitals. Their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
