ECTOR COUNTY - A fatal accident on Highway 80 on Friday afternoon has traffic being diverted.

The accident involved two pick-up trucks headed eastbound on Highway 80 near Murphy.

We're told a Forest Tire truck cut in front of an F-250.

That caused the Forest Tire truck to spin and rollover on to its roof and the truck caught fire.

The driver, 23-year-old Allan Vasquez, was killed.

The other truck somehow ended up in the median.

That driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
