Hill was pronounced dead at the scene.
The other two drivers were uninjured in the crash.
Investigators said it was raining heavily at the time of the crash, and the rain might have been a factor in the crash.

Texas does not permit brothers, sisters, cousins, or grandparents to assert any claims for the death of a family member.
