SEALY, Texas (AP) - Investigators say a child riding in the front seat of a car has been killed when part of a Central Texas highway bridge collapsed after being hit by a truck.

Sealy police say a woman driving the car was critically hurt in the accident Thursday morning after part of the truck struck a Highway 90 overpass. Debris from the damaged bridge fell onto Highway 36 and hit the car.

Police say the woman was transported to a hospital. Another child in the car survived. Officials didn't immediately provide information on the status of the truck driver.
