ODESSA, Texas (AP) - Authorities say four people were killed and two others were injured during a two-vehicle crash in West Texas.

The accident took place Sunday near Odessa when the driver of a Ford truck going north on a roadway lost control and entered the southbound lane, colliding with a Dodge truck.

The Odessa American reports the Dodge truck's driver, 35-year-old Calistro Carrillo of Odessa, died at the scene.

Two people in the Ford truck - 30-year-old Christopher Soliz, the driver, and 29-year-old Elizabeth Navarette of Odessa - died at the scene. An 8-year-old girl was taken to a hospital, where she later died.

Two girls in Soliz's truck - a 2-year-old and 10-year-old - were hospitalized.

The Texas Department of Public Safety continues investigating what caused the crash.
