The collision caused the car to roll over, ejecting both Washburn and Vaughn, neither of whom was wearing a seatbelt. Washburn was pronounced dead at the scene and Vaughn was airlifted to a Lubbock hospital where she was listed in serious condition as of Monday.  It is unclear which of them was behind the wheel at the time of the accident.
