At around seven a.m., first responders were called out to a reported head-on collision at 28019 Loop 20. Reports say the crash involved a black Volkswagen Tiguan and brown Nissan Xtera.

An eyewitness told police that they were behind the Nissan Xtera, which was traveling north on the Loop, when they saw the Volkswagen Tiguan, heading south, cross over the yellow median poles, driving into on-coming traffic heading northbound and collided head-on into the Nissan Extera.
