A fatal traffic accident led to the closure of an area highway on Monday morning.

The two-car crash happened on U.S. 10 around 7 a.m. between Patrick Road and Waldo Avenue.

According to the Midland Daily News, the two vehicles involved, a 2001 Ford F-150 pick-up truck and a 2000 Buick sedan, collided nearly head-on. According to police, the pick-up truck driver lost control, crossed the median, and entered the path of the Buick. As a result of the impact, the pick-up truck was flipped over onto its roof on the roadway.

Police said in a statement to TV5 that the Buick driver, a 46-year-old Midland man, passed away at the scene as a result of injuries sustained. The 65-year-old driver of the pick-up was treated and released from an area hospital.

An accident reconstruction team was called to the scene. At this hour, all lanes have been reopened.
