    Two people are dead following a wrong-way crash along LBJ Freeway in Mesquite Wednesday morning, police say.

    The northbound lanes of Interstate 635 were closed at the Gross Road exit after a wrong-way southbound driver behind the wheel of a Honda Civic collided with a Chevrolet Tahoe between U.S. 80 and Towne Centre Drive sometime after 1:30 a.m.

    The Dallas County medical examiner confirmed two deaths in the crash; NBC 5 learned Wednesday that both drivers died at the scene.

    One of the victims was identified Wednesday afternoon as 33-year-old Jose Lorenzo Salinas, the driver of the Civic. The identity of the driver of the Tahoe has not yet been confirmed.
