Police said the crash happened on Route 144 (Old Fort Road) near Tucker Road in Potter Township.
Police said a driver going north on Route 144 tried to pass another vehicle in a passing zone, but due to the fog, struck a vehicle traveling south.
The drivers of both vehicles were killed in the crash, police said. Their names had not yet been released and both were traveling alone.
Route 144 was closed for approximately two and a half hours between Route 322 in Potters Mills and Route 45 in Centre Hall while the investigation was conducted.
