The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported two people died and two people sustained serious injuries in a two-car crash Tuesday afternoon in Howard County.

It happened when a 2004 Dodge Neon driven by Hannah Norris, 18, crossed the center line on Highway 87 a mile north of Route K, according to the crash report. That vehicle struck a 2015 Ford Fusion driven by Kenneth Huddle, 75, of Keytesville.

The Howard County coroner pronounced Huddle and Shane Ashpaugh, 17, dead at the scene. Ashpaugh was one of the passengers in the Dodge Neon. He was from Boonville.

The driver of the Dodge Neon, Hannah Norris, and another passenger, Autumn Norris, 15, sustained serious injuries in the crash.

Paramedics transported Hannah and Autumn Norris to University Hospital.
