Two people were killed in an early Monday morning crash in Polk County, Wisconsin. 

The Polk County Sheriff's Office says the head-on collision happened just before 5:30 a.m. on Hwy. 8, about a half-mile east of 15th St. in Beaver Township, which is located just west of Turtle Lake. 

Dispatch was notified by reports from the scene that at least one person involved in the crash didn't have a pulse, and by the time first responders arrived both drivers had died from injuries sustained in the accident. 

Investigators believe that a vehicle traveling east on Hwy. 8 crossed the center line and collided head-on with a westbound vehicle, noting that it was raining at the time of the crash. 

Identities of the victims will be released pending notification of family members.
