— Ginger Norwood of Orange, 66, and Wallace Paul Rogers Sr. of Hemphill, 57, have been identified as the two victims killed in a two-vehicle crash just north of Kirbyville on Thursday.

According to Jasper County Troopers, a 2006 Dodge truck was traveling northbound on US 96. Due to heavy rain, the Dodge truck hydroplaned and spun into the southbound traffic lanes. The Dodge truck was then struck by a 2002 Kenworth truck tractor.

As a result of the crash, the driver, Rogers, and the passenger, Norwood, in the Dodge were killed.  The driver of the truck tractor is from Indiana and did not receive any injuries.
