BUDA, Texas (AP) — Two people are dead and six others were hospitalized in stable condition after a sport-utility vehicle traveling the wrong way on a road slammed into a shuttle carrying residents of a senior center.

The crash happened about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday on Farm Road 2770 in Buda, 15 miles southwest of Austin.

Buda Police Chief Bo Kidd says the SUV veered into the path of the oncoming shuttle from the Creekside Villas senior community. The 68-year-old man driving the SUV and a 74-year-old woman aboard the shuttle died. Of the six other shuttle occupants, two were taken to University Medical Center-Breckenridge in Austin and four went to Seton Medical Center-Hays in Kyle. All were listed in stable condition.

Police say it's unknown why the SUV veered into the shuttle's path.
