Two people have died in a two-vehicle crash in West Texas.
Courtney Dewayne Scales of Dallas was driving a 2005 Volvo Truck Tractor towing a 2008 Kentucky semi-trailer on Thursday when she lost control in the rainy weather.
The truck and trailer slid sideways across both north and southbound lanes, and onto the path of a 2013 Hyundai passenger car. The Kentucky trailer struck the Hyundai, killing the driver, 51-year-old Jerry Wayne Gordon, and the passenger, 50-year-old Colette Pavelka Gordon, both of Clarendon, Texas.

The Gray County Justice of the Peace pronounced both dead at the scene. Scales was transported to a local hospital with possible injuries.
The Texas Department of Public Safety says 35-year-old Scales was traveling at a speed that was unsafe for the conditions of the roadway.
