Two Lamesa residents were killed in a crash north of Midland over the weekend, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Troopers were called to the crash around 2:03 p.m. Sunday on Highway 349, about 18 miles north of Midland.
Officials say the driver of a semi-truck had stopped on Highway 349 to yield to an emergency vehicle that was blocking the roadway.
The driver of a Chevrolet Silverado then collided with the back end of the semi-truck, according to the report.
