The incident occurred around 10:40 a.m., just north of Thorndale.
According to reports, a woman was driving a 2012 Kia Sorento south on FM-486. She then stopped to allow traffic to pass before making a left turn into a church parking lot.
There, the driver of a 2016 Dodge Ram rear-ended the Kia. Due to the extent of injuries sustained, medics pronounced both occupants inside the Kia Sorento dead at the scene.
Police later identified the deceased victims as 42-year-old Tanner, of Georgetown and a 14-year-old boy.
