BRONSON, TX (KTRE) – The Department of Public Safety has released the names of the two people killed in a crash between a big rig truck and a car Thursday morning near Bronson.

DPS trooper Michael Neal, Center, said the rig was pulling out from the north side of Highway 96, making a turn to go south when the driver of a green 2001 Saturn, traveling south on Hwy 96, hit the right rear of the trailer.

The truck normally used to haul logs was not loaded at the time of the wreck. 

The driver of the car, Dustin Earl Brown, 25, and his passenger, 42 year old Rick Dwayne Oliver, both of Timpson, were killed instantly. Both had on seatbelts.

Trooper Neal said there were no skid marks to determine the rate of speed of the car, however, investigators have found the driver of the big rig to be at fault for making an unsafe turn.  Neal said charges against the truck driver, Jim Wayne Clark, 46, of Bronson are pending.
