MIDLAND COUNTY, TX (KWES) -

A 19-year-old woman is dead after a crash on FM 1788 near Rock the Desert in Midland County. 

Midland Police and Fire Departments responded to reports of a two-vehicle accident just before 6:50 p.m. in front of Rock the Desert. 

Officials say a 2001 Subaru Outback was stopped facing northbound in the inside lane of FM 1788 waiting to turn left into Rock the Desert when A 2015 Dodge Ram was also traveling northbound in the inside lane of FM 1788.

The driver of the truck did not realize the Subaru was stopped and subsequently rear ended the Subaru.

Hannah Fox, 19, the rear center passenger in the Subaru, was killed in the crash.

The four other occupants of the Subaru and the driver of the truck were all transported with non-life-threatening injuries. 

The main entrance to Rock the Desert was closed while authorities worked the scene but the roadway has since reopened. 

No charges have been filed on the driver of the truck at this time.
