Two Fort Collins, Colorado residents were killed in a head-on crash on U.S. 287 northwest of Rawlins Sunday evening.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 28-year-old Siva Chintala​ was headed south near mile marker 23 when he lost control of his car due to rainy conditions and poor tires and collided head-on with an oncoming vehicle.

Chintala and his passenger, 27-year-old Chana Gottsleben, were buckled up, but both died at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle suffered minor injuries.

Chintala​ and Gottsleben are the 97th and 98th people to die on Wyoming's highways this year.
