Five people were killed in a head-on collision on a two-lane highway in rural eastern Missouri.
St. Francois County Coroner Jim Coplin said authorities found no skid marks at the crash site on Missouri Route 00 in an area surrounded by wooded farmland about 70 miles south of St. Louis. Coplin also says there were no witnesses to the accident late Saturday night.
Coplin says 59-year-old Bessie Barker, her husband, 57-year-old
Walter Barker and 60-year-old Norma Holloway were returning home
from a high school reunion when their car crossed the center line.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says their car struck that of
46-year-old Yvonne Fulton and 48-year-old Gregory Fulton. The
Fultons were returning from a prayer service.
