"This is a very narrow, blacktop county road and there are no markings," Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Tony Fulton told the station. "There are no shoulder markings and there are no center stripe markings."

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the crash. Neither driver was wearing a seat belt, the station reported.

The crash happened near Odell, Texas, a small community about 70 miles northwest of Wichita Falls.
