Two men were fatally injured in a head-on collision just outside of Edinburg last week, the authorities said.

Ruffus Tubby, 49, and Bobby Jayroe, 52, both of Carthage, were killed after their vehicles collided on Mississippi 16, two miles west of Edinburg, Mississippi Highway Patrol Public Relations officer Andy West said.

Tubby was eastbound, driving a 2002 Toyota Sequoia, when he collided with Jayroe's Chevrolet S-10, which was westbound, he said.

"They collided at an angle," West said. "The cause of the accident is under investigation."
