DELTA, Utah (AP) -- Two people have died in a central Utah crash involving a tractor-trailer that was carrying explosives and a pickup.

Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Cameron Roden says a pickup driver ran a stop sign on U.S. Highway 50 and broadsided the semi Thursday afternoon.

Roden says the occupants of the pickup truck -- 29-year-old Richard Warnock and 27-year-old Krystal Warnock of Spanish Fork -- were not wearing seat belts and were thrown from the truck.

Roden says none of the blasting caps or ammunition being hauled by the semi appeared to have been set off in the accident, but workers were taking every precaution cleaning up the site.

The accident happened at the junction of U.S. 50 and two state routes.

Delta is about 135 miles southwest of Salt Lake City.
