FREMONT COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - Two people are dead after a semi-truck and car collided on Highway 115 Tuesday night.

Troopers say a southbound Saturn abruptly veered into northbound lanes and crashed into the oncoming semi. Both driver and passenger in the Saturn were killed; the truck driver was treated at the hospital for minor injuries.

It’s unclear why the Saturn driver went into the wrong lane. The crash remains under investigation.

The collision was reported at 7 p.m. at mile marker 19 just north of Penrose. Both directions of the highway were shut down for several hours.

The people involved in the crash have not been identified.
