Two people are dead after a four-vehicle collision in Gaines County. DPS troopers said fog may have been a factor in the Thursday morning crash on Highway 62, West of Seminole.
Reports stated a westbound pickup truck struck an 18-wheeler crossing the highway at County Road 209. An eastbound car also struck the big rig. And then an eastbound semi rear-ended that car.

The driver of the pickup, 31-year-old Karen Herrera of Hobbs, died at the scene.
