DENTON (KRLD) - Denton police say a mother and her daughter were killed in a head-on crash Thursday afternoon.

It happened in the 4700 block of Highway 380.  Police say the woman driving a Ford Fusion was heading east on 380 when she crossed the center lane and went into the westbound lanes.

She struck a CoServ utility truck head-on.  The woman and her daughter were killed.  Another child in the car was taken by air ambulance to Children's hospital.

No word how that child is doing.  The driver of the CoServe truck was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Police Public Information Officer Bryan Cose says  " We know what happened, what we're trying to figure out now is why it happened."

Denton police traffic investigators have been on the scene and the highway was shut down.
