A multitruck crash ended in a fiery collision in Baylor County killing two people.

It happened on Highway 277 between Seymour and Munday just after 1:00p.m.on Thursday.

The two tractor trucks were heading westbound on Highway 277 when the driver of the one-ton truck headed eastbound crossed over the lanes. 

The driver sideswiped one of the tractors and then hit the other one head-on.

The one-ton and the second tractor that hit both caught fire.

The highway was closed on either sides for five miles and the Texas Department Of Transportation directed traffic around the accident.
