Police had earlier reported that about 9:13 p.m. on October 16, officers were called to the intersection of South FM 116 and US Highway 190 on a report of a collision between a Honda CRV and a Ford Econoline van.

The initial investigation revealed that the Econoline van was traveling south and the Honda CRV was traveling north, with the vehicles colliding in the intersection.

Cove police said the driver of the Econoline van failed to yield the right way, and turned into the intersection striking the Honda CRV.

Police said that during the course of the investigation, it was determined that the operator of the van was not authorized by the owner to drive the vehicle.

This incident is still being investigated and with police saying that additional charges may occur as the investigation progresses.
