Authorities comb through the wreckage of a Hyundai Sonata after a collision claimed one life and slowed traffic on I-540 Saturday morning.

— Two motorists were killed in a morning wreck on I-540.

Washington County Coroner Roger Morris confirmed that the drivers of both vehicles died.

The accident happened just before 9 a.m., when a northbound Ford Ranger pickup crossed the median and hit a southbound Hyundai Sonata head-on, just north of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard exit in Fayetteville.

The identities of the drivers were not available as of noon. Neither vehicle was carrying passengers.

One driver died at the scene, the other at a local hospital.
