A Killeen man was killed and two other people were injured in a head-on crash on U.S. Highway 190 in Nolanville early Wednesday morning, police said.

Nolanville police said Dante Fair, 29, died in the crash, which occurred about 12:30 a.m. on the overpass above Main Street. Fair was a passenger in a car with another man when they collided with a car traveling the wrong way in the westbound lane.

A Nolanville Police Department administrator said it is unclear why that car was traveling the wrong direction, but police are investigating.

Police said a woman was driving the car with no passengers. She was not identified, and it’s unknown if charges are pending.

When first responders arrived, they found one of the cars partially hanging over the overpass.

Two people in the crash were taken to Scott & White Hospital in Temple with serious injuries.

    jam:: What does the SEX of the driver have to do with it? The DRIVER OF THE OTHER CAR was driving the wrong way. A male can drive the wrong way-- or don't you think that is possible. If you think that males never drive heading the wrong way, you are grossly mistaken.

    Jam: Truly sorry for your loss. If there is anything the newspaper can do, please let me know. If possible, I'd like to put in some of that information about Dante that you mentioned. Please call me at 254-501-7468.

    Mamma Griz: I understand what you are saying, and I tried to convey the gender of all involved in the accident without sounding sexist. I went ahead and reworded that paragraph, and added a sentence about possible charges.

    First of all mamma griz, it does matter who was driving the car that caused accident, cuz that was my best friends that I knew for 12yrs, he worked with me, for 8 yrs, he left behind a son, so it does matter who was driving, and I hope this female gets put away for life.

    In the article it says "the female driver". What difference does it make whether the driver of the other car was female or male-- as long as it wasn't a grizzly bear. It could have been stated that the driver of the other car was traveling in the wrong direction. But then, it was a male who wrote the article.
