FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -

Two people have been killed and a interstate highway in Fort Worth was closed after a driver going the wrong way on the freeway collided with another vehicle.

Fort Worth police said drivers had called 911 after seeing a car on the wrong side of Interstate 30.  One motorist estimated the black sedan was moving at 100 mph. The speeding car eventually slammed into a two-door coupe.

The drivers of both were killed.

Authorities haven't immediately identified the victims.  The medical examiner's office also will be looking at whether medical issues contributed to the crash.
