According to the Temple Daily Telegram, the crash occurred around 3:10 pm on State Highway 95, just south of where it becomes Northwest Loop 363.
Police believe a red Toyota sedan was struck by a heavy truck carrying a load of scrap metal when the sedan failed to stop at a stop sign.
The collision mangled the small sedan, and the truck was forced of the side of the road into the grassy ditch.
Two occupants of the sedan, a man and a woman, were pronounced dead. The driver of the truck sustained minor injuries.
