Two people died Friday evening in a fiery, two-car crash on Colorado Highway 92 east of Delta, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

The accident, which happened around 5:50 p.m. 13 miles east of Delta, killed the drivers of the vehicles, trooper Heather Cobler said.

Initial police-radio reports indicated at least one of the vehicles caught on fire.

The accident closed the highway in both directions for nearly three hours, Cobler said.
