Two Boswell High School students were killed and three people hurt in a crash Wednesday afternoon along West Bailey Boswell Road in North Fort Worth, authorities say.

The crash took place about 4:30 p.m. west of Old Decatur Road near the intersection with Twin Mills Boulevard.

Fort Worth police said Thursday that two students, identified by Boswell High School Principal Nika Davis as brothers Isaiah Lopez, a senior, and Elijah Lopez, a freshman, were in a sedan headed eastbound on West Bailey Boswell Road.

Police said the driver lost control of the vehicle and it crossed into the westbound lanes where it collided head-on with a large pickup truck.

Both students were pronounced dead at the scene. Three people in the truck were injured, two of whom required hospitalization. The third person was treated at the scene and released.

"Our school community is in shock with the loss of Isaiah and Elijah. As we all work to process this startling news, I want to assure you that our focus is on the emotional well-being of our school community. The loss of any life is a tragic situation, especially when the loss is a classmate or a peer, " Davis said in a statement.

Grief counselors are being provided to the family, students, and school staff, Davis said.

"Our hearts are filled with grief for the families and friends affected, and we appreciate your support of our students and staff during this time," she said.

The conditions of the two who remain hospitalized are not known.
