COLLIN COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – An early morning head-on collision in Collin County has left one woman dead and a Plano firefighter in critical condition.

According to investigators, it was around 7:30 a.m. when the two drivers crashed on Highway121 and Outer Loop Road, in the city of Anna.

The female victim, identified as Zelia Alvarez of Westminster, was driving a 2008 GMC Yukon. The second vehicle, driven by firefighter Lindy Lawley, was a Chevy 2500 pickup.

Police do not know the circumstances of the crash and are still trying to determine if one vehicle perhaps veered over the center line or if one driver was trying to pass another vehicle and caused the head-on collision.

City of Prosper court clerk Zelia Alvarez died from the injuries she sustained in a head-on crash in Anna, Texas.
