Two college students die in crash west of Fort Worth

Yesterday evening just after 6:00PM, multiple emergency responders were called to the intersection of Farm to Market Road 4 and US Highway 281, about an hour west of Fort Worth, for a major crash.

Early reports indicate at least two vehicles were involved in a highway speed crash at the intersection. One of the vehicles was occupied by two college students.

One of the college students was pronounced deceased at the scene. The second was airlifted to JPS in Fort Worth, but pronounced deceased at the hospital. The one airlifted has been identified as a 20-year-old woman from Fort Worth. The identity of the other occupant has not been released.

A social media post from a politician running for Texas House indicates both of the college students had been knocking on doors for this political campaign all day, and were traveling back to their hotel when the accident occurred.

According to DPS, their vehicle was traveling east on FM 4 when the driver failed to yield to the right of way of a northbound pickup truck. The pickup truck t-boned the vehicle occupied by both students.
