The two victims who died in a two-vehicle accident on state line Highway 21 in Sabine County late Saturday night have been identified, according to Texas DPS officials.
The fatalities were identified as 29-year-old Robert Procell from Hemphill and Chelsea Chaney, 27, of Jasper.

She was identified as 37-year-old Trudy Jones from Hemphill. Chevrolet driver Tellis Jones and two children sustained unknown injuries from the impact. They were all airlifted to the LSU Medical Center for treatment. Their condition remains unknown.
