The crash happened at 1:30 p.m., DPS reported. The deceased were driving northbound in a 2008 Cadillac DTS. A 2011 Dodge Ram was traveling southbound on the highway passing another vehicle.

The driver of the Cadillac, 77-year-old Alvin Bruce Gilliam, and the passenger, his wife 72-year-old Joann Brockman Gilliam, died at the scene.

The truck and the Cadillac swerved to avoid each other but did so in the same direction, left the roadway and collided in the east bar ditch, DPS reported. No charges or citations were reported Friday.
