DUCHESNE, Utah (AP) -- Two brothers from Colorado died after colliding head-on with another driver trying to pass a semi in foggy, wet weather.

John Hay, 60, of Arvada, Colo., and Dan Hay, 61, Longmont, Colo., were killed Saturday on state Highway 40 in northeastern Utah.

The wives of both men were in the back seat of their Jeep and sustained serious head and chest injuries. The women were transported by ambulance to the Uintah Basin Medical Center and later airlifted to a Salt Lake City hospital.

The driver of the other vehicle, a 26-year-old Vernal man, and his wife, who was a passenger, suffered minor injuries but did not require medical treatment.
