Two people died when the car they were in collided with a semi truck in the south metro.

The crash happened just before 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, the Minnesota State Patrol said, on Highway 13 in Burnsville. 

The driver of a 2001 Honda Accord, heading eastbound, attempted to turn on to Chowen Avenue. As they did so, a westbound semi truck collided with the vehicle.

The driver of the Accord, 67-year-old Mario Padilla of Minneapolis, died at the scene. The lone passenger, 37-year-old Alejandro Guadalupe of Madison, Wisconsin, also died in the wreck. Both were wearing a seat belt, and the State Patrol says alcohol is not believed to be a factor. 

The 31-year-old driver of the semi truck was uninjured.
