DENTON, TX – Two young missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) were killed in a head-on crash in Denton on Tuesday morning, according to CBS DFW.

The collision occurred on Sherman Drive at about 11 a.m., when the driver of a pickup truck headed southbound crossed into the northbound lanes, crashing head-on into another pickup.

Two young men inside the second pickup truck, identified as 18-year-old Utah resident Luke Carter and 20-year-old Eli Fowler, of Colorado, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The wrong-way driver was taken to the hospital for the treatment of undisclosed injuries.

The Church stated on Wednesday that Fowler and Carter had been assigned to a mission in the Fort Worth area.

Authorities continue to investigate the collision.
