LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two people were killed when a truck hit a UPS truck Monday evening on Outer Loop at Interstate 65 North.

The Coroner's Office confirmed that Trenton Teamer, 26, and Jordan Winston, 29, died in the crash.

The crash happened around 6:30 p.m., according to Officer Beth Ruoff, a spokesperson for the Louisville Metro Police Department. 

Ruoff said a "large UPS truck" was exiting I-65 North to Outer Loop when it was hit by "a large dually truck" with a large trailer that was headed eastbound on Outer Loop. 

The dually "continued underneath" the UPS truck, Ruoff said. Both occupants of the truck were pronounced dead at the scene, Ruoff said. 

No additional information about the victims was immediately available, according to police. It is unclear whether or not the driver of the UPS truck was injured in the crash.

Outer Loop was shut down in both directions for several hours for cleanup and for officers to investigate. LMPD's Traffic Unit will handle the investigation.
