Double fatality on Highway 70 west of Lone Grove

Two people are dead after an accident west of Lone Grove yesterday on Highway 70 at Young Road.

Officials say a white, four-door car was attempting to turn south on to Young Road from the westbound lanes of Highway 70 and was struck by a semi traveling in the eastbound lanes.

The semi sent the car into the median approximately 300 feet form the intersection. The semi then rolled onto its top into the ditch on the south side of the road.

Both the driver of the truck and the car were killed in the accident.
