On Wednesday, December 22, 2021 at 7:39 pm, Amarillo police officers were dispatched on a major accident on the 500 block of W. St. Francis. 

When officers arrived they found a Nissan Altima occupied by 5 individuals, which had been traveling west bound on St. Francis. The Nissan was struck head on by a Chevrolet 2500 pickup, which had been traveling East bound in the West bound lanes. 

Four of the occupants of the car were pronounced deceased at the scene. A 23 year old woman and the driver of the suspect vehicle, were transported to an area hospital with life threatening injuries.
