UPDATE: Officials with the Department of Public Safety have identified the two people killed Wednesday in a crash just north of Liberty Hill.

Investigators say a 2007 Chevy Silverado was traveling northbound on Hwy 183 when it tried to go around another vehicle and struck a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee also going northbound -- that collision pushed the Cherokee into the southbound lanes, causing it to crash into a 2007 Cadillac head-on.

Both occupants of the Cadillac were killed. They have identified as Norman Burton, 48, and Theresa Burton, 79, both of Austin.

Further details were not immediately available.
