According to DPS, a man is dead following a head on collision in Washington County.

The accident happened around 12:30 a.m. Monday on Highway 105 at the Brazos River.

Officials say a Cadillac sedan was heading eastbound on the highway when it crossed over the lanes of traffic and crashed head-on with a Dodge Ram 3500 Dually and burst into flames.

Officials say witnesses pulled the driver, 27-year-old Juaquell Jessie from the car before it caught fire. Jessie however was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 16-year-old boy and his 20-year-old sister were inside the truck. They were both taken to separate hospitals with serious injuries.

Highway 105 was shutdown for several hours as officials investigated the crash.
