A Gatesville couple was killed Wednesday evening, when their vehicle was struck in a wrong-way accident in Amarillo, officials said.

Police identified the couple as 73-year-old David Wiseman and his wife, 66-year-old Alice Wiseman, who both passed after arriving at an Amarillo hospital, authorities reported.

The driver of the pickup truck, which struck the Wiseman’s was also killed in the car accident in Amarillo. He was identified as 88-year-old Eugene Baslar, a resident of Amarillo.

Wrong-way driving has continued to be an issue across the state of Texas, causing authorities to search for various answers and solutions to the dangerous problem. In many cases, wrong-way accidents in Texas are sparked by drivers who are operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol. On the other hand, some instances of wrong-way driving result from disorientation.

No matter what the cause of a wrong way accident, the results can be tragic, resulting in serious injuries and death.
