Two people died Saturday morning in a car crash on Highway 51 North.

A Texas Department of Public Safety report confirmed Brian L. Walden, 20; and Donald S. Bowers, 19, both of Glen Rose, were pronounced dead on the scene by Justice of the Peace Martin Castillo of Precinct One at 9 a.m.

A preliminary investigation revealed Walden was driving a 1997 Saturn at a “high rate of speed” while traveling south on Highway 51 North when he failed to negotiate a curve, struck a guardrail and skidded into the northbound lane.
