The other driver injured in the head-on collision just before 4 p.m. Wednesday between a Dodge pickup truck and a minivan at the intersection of Old Lorena Road and Church Road was flown to Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center by helicopter, where they later died.

Gray, a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, joined the church in 1999, according to First Woodway’s website.

He is survived by his wife, Kay; sons, Richard, Steven and Michael; daughter, Linda; and grandchildren.

Pastor Mike Toby, 65, died on Dec. 29 at his home after he was diagnosed with brain cancer in October.
