One young woman was killed and another was seriously injured after a head-on traffic collision in Copperas Cove Friday morning.

The crash occurred shortly after 7 AM in the 1200 block of East Business 190.

Authorities say a 2005 Volkswagen Passat was traveling east when it crossed over the center median into oncoming westbound traffic. The Volkswagen collided with a 2014 Toyota Camry headed west.

The 23-year-old woman driving the Volkswagen was pronounced dead at the scene by Judge William Price. The 20-year-old driver of the Toyota was airlifted to Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Temple.

The names of the two women had not been released as of Friday afternoon, and an investigation of the crash continued.
