Micah Nathaniel Millican, 21, of Temple and Hubert Jude Klepac, 44, of Bartlett died at the scene Sunday evening in a fiery collision on State Highway 95 three miles south of Bartlett, authorities said Monday.

Millican was southbound on the highway just before 6 p.m. Sunday when his 2013 Chevrolet Malibu crossed into the northbound lane and struck the 2001 Dodge 1500 in which Klepac and three others were riding, authorities said.

One of the vehicles caught on fire after the collision.

The passengers in the Dodge, Jennifer Klepac, 42, of Bartlett, and an 8-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl whose names were not released, all of Bartlett, were seriously injured.

Jennifer Klepac was taken to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple and the two children were taken to McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple.

The accident is under investigation.
