MARLIN, Texas- Two people - a Baylor University student and a recent graduate - were killed when the pickup truck in which they were riding slammed into a tree beside a Central Texas highway.

Two other Baylor students were injured.

The crash happened about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday on Texas 7 about three miles east of Marlin near the town of Kosse. Trooper D.L. Wilson of the Texas Department of Public Safety says the truck drifted off the road when the driver lost control of the vehicle.

A Baylor University statement identified the dead as driver John Patrick Stewart of Dallas, a junior instrumental studies major, and front-seat passenger Laura Onwudinanti of Grand Prairie, a recent music education graduate.

The Baylor statement says the four were headed to Louisiana State University.
