For some reason, the car heading eastbound hit the car moving in the opposite direction, causing the accident. The two people in the eastbound vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene.

Photos from the accident scene sent to FOX 13 showed parts from one or both of the cars, including an engine, sitting in the middle of the road.
