MORGAN MILL, TX (AP) -

Authorities say four people have been killed in a North Texas auto accident triggered when one vehicle crossed the center line into oncoming traffic.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says a Volkswagen driven southbound Sunday afternoon on Highway 281 by 18-year-old Courtney Kay Smalley of Lipan drifted into the northbound lane.

DPS said Monday the vehicle struck a Mercedes driven by 29-year-old Matthew Lee Keith of Searcy, Ariz.

Smalley was killed along with her passenger, 19-year-old Kimberly G. Peacock of Fort Worth. Keith also died in the wreck, as did his passenger, 26-year-old Tsanti C. Keith.

The head-on collision occurred in Erath County, about 65 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

It wasn't immediately clear what caused the Volkswagen to drift across the center line.
