MILAM COUNTY Texas Department of Public Safety Troopers are working an accident that left two people dead Saturday morning.

According to DPS, four vehicles were involved in the accident Saturday, about two miles east of Rockdale. Troopers on scene did not release a lot of information. They are still trying to contact next-of-kin.

Highway 79 was closed for a while, but troopers say they are opening the roadway to both directions.

Troopers say they should have more information later Saturday.
