Two families are making funeral arrangements following a deadly head-on collision this weekend. It happened just after 2:00 p.m. Saturday on Highway 114, just two miles east of Levelland.
DPS troopers say 48-year-old Allen Lockett, of Levelland, was driving the wrong way when he crashed into another truck head on. Lockett and the other driver 18-year-old Kelli Herd of Morton, died. The impact of the crash also caused Lockett's truck to burst into flames.
Authorities still do not know what caused Lockett to drive into oncoming traffic. They're hoping toxicology reports might provide some insight into their investigation. But, results are not expected for a few days.
