According to the Corpus Christi Caller-Times, the vehicles were traveling in opposite directions of State Highway 35 when one of them, a Chevy Silverado, entered into oncoming traffic as it attempted pass another vehicle in front. It crashed head-on into a Ford F-150.
The two drivers, identified as Glen Prince and Daniel Olvera, were both dead on the scene.
The accident remains under investigation.
Even though head-on collisions only account for approximately 2 percent of crashes they account for about 10 percent of fatalities.
They are the most dangerous form of collision with both drivers speeding towards each other before barreling into one another, resulting in greater impact forces than other collision.
