2 Dead, 2 Injured in Heartland, TX, Wrong-way Accident on FM 741

Heartland, TX -- March 14, 2017, two people were killed, two others injured, following an accident where two cars crashed head-on along FM 741.

The Texas Department of Public Safety was called to investigate the fatal crash scene at around 9:30 p.m. They say it happened along FM 741 just south of I-20.

Preliminary accident investigations state that a man was driving a Chevrolet pickup in the wrong direction in southbound traffic lanes. Reports also claim his headlights were off at the time. As he did so, he crossed paths with and ran head-on into an oncoming Ford F-150.

As a result of the collision, the driver of both pickups were killed at the scene. Two minors, ages unspecified, suffered injuries said to be non-critical. They were both taken to Dallas Medical Center, one via helicopter.

At this time, the factors contributing to the accident are unclear. Authorities are not yet sure why the man was driving on the wrong side of the road.

Investigations are currently ongoing.
