Two men died after a freight truck pulling multiple trailers collided with their car near North Slide and Clovis Highway in Texas, USA on Friday afternoon.
Lubbock police have identified them as 23-year-old Igbinedion Osaretin (second son of former Edo State Governor, Chief Lucky Igbinedion) and his cousin, 21-year-old Esosa Oyemwense.
The semi truck, owned by Old Dominion Freight Line, was carrying hazardous material. A Lubbock Fire Rescue hazmat team was brought in for clean-up because of worries about a chemical spill . All of the hazardous material inside of the trailer was contained, but the company brought in its own hazmat crew as a safety measure.
The driver of the semi was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
The two men, cousins of Texas Tech basketball player Norense Odiase, were honored with a moment of silence before the Texas Tech/Baylor game on Saturday.
