Two truck drivers have died in a head-on crash during a dust storm near Truro.

The smash occurred on the Sturt Highway, 6km east of Truro, just after 11.30am yesterday.

CFS crews were called to the scene after the semi-trailers caught alight.

A dust storm created up by yesterdays strong winds stopped emergency crews from accessing the crash site for some time.

When police and paramedics arrived at the scene they found a 26-year-old Riverland man and 64-year-old Andrews Farm man had died.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or had to take evasive action to avoid a collision is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000

The two deaths take the State's road toll to 73.  It was 43 at the same time last year.
