Police are investigating after two drivers were killed in a wrong-way crash in Massachusetts.

Troopers in Worcester County responded to the crash on Route 2 in Phillipston at about 11 p.m., according to the Massachusetts State Police.

State Police had received reports shortly before 11 p.m. about a driver going west on the eastbound side of Route 2. Authorities then received reports about a head-on crash on the eastbound side west of Exit 79 in Phillipston. 

Police said the crash involved a 2014 Chevy Sonic and a 2018 Ford Escape. Authorities said the Ford left the roadway and went over the guardrail and down an embankment, hitting a tree before it became engulfed in flames.

Police said the 24-year-old Athol woman who was driving the Chevy was pronounced dead at the scene. The 26-year-old Westford man who was driving the Ford was also pronounced dead at the scene. 

The identities of the two have not been released.

The investigation is ongoing.
