(CNN) – Nine people — including six student athletes and their coach — were killed in a fiery crash between a pickup truck and a van carrying members of the University of the Southwest’s men’s and women’s golf teams, officials said Wednesday.

The crash happened around 8:17 p.m. Tuesday just outside Andrews, Texas, the Texas Department of Public Safety said.”A Dodge 2500 pickup was traveling southbound on FM 1788. A Ford Transit passenger van registered to the University of the Southwest in Hobbs, NM was traveling northbound on FM 1788,” the DPS said in a statement. An earlier notice from the agency misidentified the pickup as a Ford F-150.

“For unknown reasons, the Dodge pickup drove into the northbound lane and struck the Ford passenger van head on,” DPS Sgt. Steven Blanco said. “Both vehicles caught fire and burned.”

Six students and one faculty member aboard the university van were killed, the DPS said. The driver and a passenger in the pickup truck also died.
