Kerrville, Texas (July 21, 2023) – One person was killed, and three others were injured Thursday morning in a four-vehicle crash in Kerrville, according to the police.

A Ford transit van was traveling behind the Toyota and changed lanes to try to avoid the crash, but it also hit the Chevrolet pickup.

A spare tire got loose from the Chevrolet truck and hit a fourth vehicle that was stopped on Blue Ridge Road.

The driver of the Toyota Corolla, 71-year-old Bruce Rische, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other three drivers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The police are investigating the crash.
