Three Copperas Cove students were taken to medical facilities for "incapacitating" injuries after being involved in a two-vehicle collision Friday, officials said.
According to DPS, the students were traveling west bound on FM 1113 in a Toyota pickup when the vehicle pulled into the intersection at FM 580 in Topsey and collided with a north bound Chevrolet pickup around 11:30 Friday morning.
The 16-year-old male driver of the Toyota was transported to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, and a 15-year-old female passenger was taken to Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in Temple. Both were transported by ambulance.
A second passenger, a 14-year-old male who was riding in the bed of the Toyota, was thrown from the vehicle on impact. He was airlifted to Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in Temple.
The driver of the Chevrolet was a 58-year-old man from Marble Falls. He was transported by private vehicle to an unknown medical facility for evaluation of possible injuries.
The Pride of Cove Band did not perform at Copperas Cove's high school football game against Killeen Friday night as all three students involved were members of the band, the Copperas Cove Independent School District said.
"Please keep three of our students who were involved in a car accident earlier today in your prayers," the district wrote on social media.
CCISD said the students and their families remain in the district's thoughts and prayers.
DPS is still investigating this crash.
