JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, Ind. (WFFT) -- Two people are dead and two are critically injured after authorities say their vehicle ran a stop sign and struck a commercial grain trailer in Huntington County Saturday morning, 

Paramedics responded to State Road 124 and County Road 300 West at 8:03 a.m. 

The Huntington County Coroner says four people were riding in a vehicle that was headed north on County 300 when it ran the stop sign. 

The vehicle hit a grain trailer that was being hauled by an eastbound semi, causing the tractor-trailer to spin and strike a guardrail. The trailer separated from the semi, spilling its load into the road. 

The coroner says two people died at the scene. Two passengers were flown to local hospitals with life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the semi was not injured. 

Names of the victims will be notified once their families are identified.
