Two Texas County residents were injured late Monday afternoon in a nearly head-on crash on Highway 137 two miles north of Raymondville.
Tpr. Myron Downey said a northbound 1997 Mazda driven by Jesse J. Jones, 20, of Raymondville, skidded into the southbound lane and struck a 2006 Dodge operated by John B. Fleming, 48, of Hartshorn.
Both were taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital with moderate injuries. Downey said Jones was not wearing a seat belt; Fleming was.
The Mazda was totaled. Damage was extensive to the Dodge.
