No other injuries were reported in the fatal wreck, which occurred about 12:09 a.m. in the 3200 block of I-35W.
“They had just gotten a new house in Houston and they were just coming here to visit for a few days,” Susan Jenkins of Crowley said in a Sunday telephone interview.
One victim was identified as Vincent Jenkins, 31, of Houston, who was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a family member and the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office website on Sunday.
The other victim was Rhonda Jenkins, 57, also of Houston, according to family members and the website. She also died at the scene.
Autopsies are scheduled to determine their causes of death.
Family members said the fatal crash involved two vehicles.
Police have not released any details on the crash.
Authorities closed the northbound lanes on the highway for more than five hours early Sunday as police investigated the crash.
Funeral services are pending for the victims.
