Two siblings have been identified as victims in a Sunday head-on collsion that seriously injured three other people in central Mansfield, officials said Tuesday.

The Tarrant County medical examiner’s office identified the victims as Anthony Deandre McAfee, 14, and Ashante’ Deandrea Wilson, 16, both of Grand Prairie. They were half-brother and half-sister, according to medical examiner records.

A man who answered the telephone at the family’s Grand Prairie home Tuesday asked for privacy for the family and declined to comment.

On their Facebook pages, McAfee and Wilson listed Kaiserslautern High School as their school. The school also known as “K-Town” or simply “KHS,” is a private Department of Defense operated international school in Kaiserslautern, Germany. The family had recently moved to Grand Prairie, according to the siblings’ Facebook pages.

Police responded to a call of a wreck about 5:30 p.m. Sunday in the 4000 block of East Broad Street.

A sports utility vehicle driven by an adult and occupied by three juveniles including the two siblings was eastbound when it swerved into the westbound lanes of Broad Street and collided with a pickup, police said.

An eastbound car was also hit, and the two people in that vehicle were treated at the scene.

The male SUV driver and the third juvenile were taken to hospitals, as was the driver of the pickup, police said. Their conditions were not available on Tuesday. The names of the people who survived the wreck had not been released.

One teen was pronounced dead at the scene, and the second died a short time later in a hospital, police said.

Cause of the wreck and factors contributing to it remained under investigation on Tuesday.
