(CBS/AP) GOLIAD, Texas - Authorities say a pickup truck crashed in South Texas Sunday, killing 13 people in the vehicle and injuring 10. All 23 passengers were in the same Ford F-250 truck, according to officials.

Louann Presas, a spokeswoman for the Texas Department of Public Safety, says the crash occurred about 7 p.m. CT Sunday when the truck ran off the highway and crashed into some trees near Berclair. The unincorporated community is about 100 miles southeast of San Antonio.

"The truck left the roadway and struck two very large trees," Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman Gerald Bryant told The San Antonio Express-News.

According to Bryant, a total of 23 people of "a variety of ages," including some children, were in the vehicle. The victims have not yet been identified, he said.
