HOLLIDAY, TX (KAUZ) -

One of the two women killed in a head-on collision Thursday afternoon just outside Wichita Falls was a substitute teacher for Holliday ISD. 

Nancy Day, 69, has been working with the school district for nearly a decade. 

Superintendent Kevin Dyes released a statement about the impact Day had there. 

"Mrs. Day was a valued member of our school community as a substitute teacher for the past 9 years. She always exhibited a positive and caring attitude towards students and staff. Mrs. Day had a heart for students, teachers and loved substituting at Holliday. We considered Mrs. Day a part of our family and she will be greatly missed by the students and staff of Holliday ISD," Dyes said in a statement. 

Both Day and Nancy Wagenfuehr, 51, hit head-on after Day veered into oncoming traffic on TX-79 near Edwards Way and Elliot Road.  

Both women were from Wichita Falls. They were pronounced dead at the scene. 

We are working to confirm what caused the crash. Stay with Newschannel 6 for the latest.
