A 2004 Honda, which was also traveling east, T-boned the spinning Mustang splitting it in half and ejecting the driver, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The mother and daughter were taken to a hospital in The Woodlands in stable condition. DPS says the driver of the Honda was taken to a local hospital. He is in critical condition.
