GRAND COUNTY, Utah — Two semi-truck drivers were killed in a head-on collision early Tuesday morning in Grand County.

The incident happened just south of Interstate 70 around 4:35 a.m.

Officials with the Utah Department of Public Safety said an International semi-truck was traveling northbound on U.S. Route 191 when it drifted to the left and crossed into oncoming traffic near milepost 154.

A Kenworth semi-truck that was traveling southbound could not get out of the way in time and collided with the International semi head-on.

The crash remains under investigation.

Sgt. Cameron Roden with the Utah Highway Patrol said the road was closed for several hours in both directions while crews cleared the scene.
