BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — Two people were killed in a head-on collision south of Longmont early Friday morning, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office said.

The crash happened after 2 a.m. on Highway 287 just north of Oxford Road in unincorporated Boulder County.

A 55-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman who were the drivers of the vehicles were pronounced dead at the scene, the Colorado State Patrol said. There were no passengers in either vehicle.

The Colorado State Patrol said the woman driver of a 2008 Toyota sedan was traveling northbound on Highway 287 in the southbound lane when it collided head-on with a 2011 Mitsubishi convertible.

The Colorado State Patrol said it did not appear as if drugs or alcohol were involved in the collision. Officials said they are not aware of either driving having any medical conditions.

Highway 287 was closed in both directions between Oxford and Pike roads. It reopened just after 8:30 a.m.
