According to officials, 55-year-old Elisabeth Hildebrand and 60-year-old Katharina Froese were in a vehicle that was going southbound along Highway 214/Highway 83. At the intersection ahead, it appears a semi-truck going northbound attempted to make a left turn onto RR 2056. As the truck turned, it collided with the southbound vehicle.

Details suggest that Hildebrand died at the scene of the crash due to the collision. Froese was reportedly taken to a hospital and succumbed to her injuries later on. There were no other confirmed injuries.

Images online show that there is no traffic control for northbound and southbound traffic on Highway 214. If the images are up to date, this would suggest a vehicle making a left turn would have to yield to oncoming traffic. Right now, there is no word on whether or not charges or citations are being considered. Investigations continue.
