Two people were killed when a semitruck drifted into oncoming traffic on state Route 191 in Grand County early Tuesday.

The crash occurred shortly before 5 a.m., when an International semitruck traveling north on state Route 191 near milepost 154 drifted left and crossed the center line into southbound traffic.
