TERRY COUNTY, Texas (KCBD) - Two drivers have died after a collision on US 380 in Terry County, two miles east of Gomez.

DPS says 42-year-old James Benjamin Northcutt of Carrizozo, NM was driving a 2016 Dodge Charger eastbound on US 380 while a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am driven by Angel Rojas-Crranco of Brownfield was headed westbound.
