Amarillo, TX (June 8, 2023) - On Wednesday, June 7, a 17-year-old girl was killed, and a truck driver was injured following a head-on crash in the Amarillo area. 

The fatal accident was reported on State Loop 335 at around 12:45 a.m. Local authorities revealed that an Amarillo resident was traveling westbound in a 2010 BMW 3281 as a 2022 Freightliner truck tractor towing a semi-trailer was headed eastbound. 

The BMW crossed into oncoming traffic into the path of the semi. The truck driver attempted to take evasive action, but the two vehicles struck head-on. 

The BMW caught fire, and the driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The 63-year-old Amarillo man driving the rig was transported to Northwest Texas Hospital for treatment of sustained injuries. 

An ongoing investigation into the cause of the crash is in progress. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
