MIDLAND COUNTY, Texas — Two men are dead following a crash on SH 349 in Midland County.

According to DPS, the crash occurred on Aug. 3 around 5 a.m.

Jose Castillo, 55, of Midland was driving a truck tractor south on SH 349.

At the same time, James Featherston, 38, of Oglesby, Texas was traveling east in a truck on CR 140 heading towards SH 349.

Featherston reportedly failed to yield the right of way at the intersection of SH 349 and CR 140.

This caused Castillo to strike the driver's side of the truck.

Both vehicles came to a rest in the east barrow ditch of SH 349.

As a result of the crash, the truck tractor completely burned as did the front of the truck.

Both drivers were pronounced dead. DPS says it is unknown if either man was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

No further information is available and DPS is still investigating the crash.
