Dallas police say two girls have been killed and seven other people hurt in a traffic accident after a car apparently ran out of gas.

Investigators say a car carrying seven people was stopped Tuesday night along a road, waiting for a relative to bring some gasoline. Police say a larger car, carrying two people, struck the stopped vehicle.

The medical examiner's office Wednesday identified the girls who died as 1-year-old Nebriyah Bates and 4-year-old Tey-Onna Burnley. The coroner's office had no information on whether the children were related.

Police say five people from the smaller car were transported to hospitals. Details were not immediately available on their conditions.

Police say the two people in the larger car were treated at the scene.
