CONGRESS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an early morning crash on an Ohio interstate involving a box truck and a semi-truck and trailer claimed the lives of two people over the weekend.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says the semi had pulled over onto the right berm of the northbound lanes of Interstate 71 in Wayne County after striking a deer at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

Moments later, officials said, a box truck heading north in the right lane struck the disabled vehicle, killing two passengers in the box truck.

The semi driver was uninjured and the box truck driver had non-life-threatening injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
