Both were commuting in a Dodge Grand Caravan that DPS investigators say was struck head-on by a Toyota Camry traveling south in the northbound lane of the highway. 

The other four victims, all from Alice, Texas, were between 18 and 24 years old.

Three other unidentified passengers traveling in the Grand Caravan were also taken to a Corpus Christi hospital after the incident.
