One person was killed in a collision on State Route 260 Monday morning.

The Gila County Sheriff’s Office confirmed as the Roundup went to press that one person was dead after a 20-foot Penske box truck collided with a semi truck.

It appears one of the drivers crossed the center line, clipping the side of the other truck. The Penske truck went off the highway and into a ravine, killing the driver.

The accident occurred around 9:30 a.m. in a winding, two-lane section of roadway between Steve Coury Ford and the Gila County maintenance yard in Star Valley.

Paramedics took the driver of the semi to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
