COLLIN COUNTY, Texas — Two people are dead and three others were injured after a head-on crash near the Collin County city of Nevada on Sunday, officials said.

The Texas Department of Public Safety told WFAA the crash happened just after 10 a.m. on FM 6, about a mile west of Nevada.

Investigators believe a Nissan vehicle was going westbound on FM 6 and a Chevy Equinox was going eastbound when one of the vehicles went into the opposite lane of traffic, leading to the crash, according to officials.

The driver of the Nissan died at the scene, while the driver and three other passengers in the Chevy Equinox were transported to hospitals with unknown injuries, officials initially said Sunday.

On Monday, officials said another person died as a result of the crash. The two deceased victims were identified as Benjamin Andrus, 19, and Amanda Willoughby, 27.

DPS did not say which vehicles Andrus and Willoughby were inside.

DPS has not yet determined which vehicle crossed into the opposite lane and what may have led to it.
