TORREY, Wayne County — A man and woman from Tennessee were killed in a head-on crash in Capitol Reef National Park on Wednesday.

The Fosters were driving east on state Route 24 near Torrey when the driver of the westbound truck drifted off the right side of the road, overcorrected back to the left and hit the Fosters' car, the Utah Highway Patrol reported.
Stephen Foster and Kristina Foster were not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the car, UHP reported.
