MIDLAND COUNTY, TX (KWES) - A California man is dead following a three vehicle crash in Midland County on Tuesday morning.

The accident happened at the intersection of State Highway 158 and FM 1379, about six miles east of Midland.

DPS Troopers said a 2004 Jeep Cherokee, driven by Daniel Studie, 42, of Rosamond, California, failed to yield the right of way and turned west onto State Highway 158 and was hit by a 2015 GMC pickup truck that was traveling east on Highway 158.

That's when the Cherokee was hit by a big rig that was stopped in the turning lane of State Highway 158.

Studie was pronounced dead at the scene.

The drivers of the other two vehicles weren't injured.
