Two People Dead After Major Wreck


DPS closed roads near highway 136 and FM 293 after a three car wreck that killed two people Friday evening. 

31 year old Megan Hendrix was heading south when she moved into the northbound lane to pass a semi. Instead, her Altima hit a Lincoln head-on, causing the Lincoln to hit a third car, a Corolla.  

DPS officials say Hendrix and the passenger in the Lincoln, 77 year old Zelma Byers, died at the scene.  The driver of the Lincoln was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and the driver of the Corolla was taken with non life-threatening injuries. 

Everyone was wearing seatbelts and investigators do not think weather was a factor in this crash.
