BLOOMFIELD, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a Texas family was killed when their vehicle collided head-on with another while they were traveling in New Mexico.

New Mexico State Police say the crash occurred Friday around 9 p.m. on US 550, about 20 miles south of Bloomfield.

According to investigators, 24-year-old Brian Lee became fatigued while driving northbound and crossed the center line.

They say his Ford truck crashed into a van heading southbound.

All four occupants in the van died immediately upon impact.

Authorities have identified them as 47-year-old Michael Miller, of Argyle, 48-year-old Leann Miller and their two children, 12-year-old Zoey Miller and 7-year-old Miles Miller. Police say Michael Miller was the only person using a seatbelt.

Lee was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

State police say the investigation remains ongoing.
