Two men have died following a head-on crash on U.S. 54 in Pratt County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the crash happened Wednesday afternoon as the driver of one of the tractor-trailers veered to the left to avoid slower moving traffic ahead on U.S. 54. The rig then collided with the second tractor-trailer about 3 miles west of the Pratt County town of Cullison.

A passenger in one semi, 42-year-old Arturo Mora, of Chaparral, New Mexico, and driver of another semi, 36-year-old Patricio Maturino, of El Paso, Texas, were both killed. 

One driver that was injured was transported to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.
