Two people are dead following a head-on collision in Roberts County, roughly 25 miles north of Pampa, Texas.
Reports indicate that around 6:45 am, a 2013 Dodge Stratus driven by 23-year-old Jorge Avalos was traveling south along the highway when, for unknown reasons, the vehicle crossed over the median and struck a 2013 Chrysler sedan.
Both Avalos and the driver of the Chrysler, 50-year-old Sharon Sweat, were killed in the accident. Fire fighters had to use the “jaws of life” to extricate the victims from their vehicles.
Both lanes were closed for roughly half an hour as police cleared wreckage and debris from the scene. Authorities are still investigating the accident.
