Millsap's passenger, 31-year-old Sara Pierce from Brownfield, was pronounced dead at the scene. Millsap was taken to Midland Memorial Hospital where he later died. The driver of the tanker truck was also taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Millsap and Pierce were on their way back to Lubbock to begin follow up visits Saturday at homes that did not mail in Census forms.
