A Texas family of four, including two children, was killed in a two-vehicle crash in northwest New Mexico late Friday, according to State Police.

Michael Miller, 47; his wife, Leann Miller, 48; and their children, Zoey Miller, 12, and Miles Miller, 7, died in the head-on collision that happened around 9 p.m. on U.S. 550 about 20 miles south of Bloomfield, State Police said on Saturday.

The Miller family of Argyle, Texas, was heading southbound in a van on U.S. 550 when a northbound driver in a pickup truck, 24-year-old Brian Lee, reportedly became fatigued and crossed the center line, striking the family’s van, according to State Police.

Only one of the van’s occupants, driver Michael Miller, was wearing a seatbelt, and the family was killed on impact, police said.

Lee of Bloomfield was sent to a Farmington hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

State Police is continuing its investigation.
