BELTON, Mo. — A 78-year-old woman and an 80-year-old man died Tuesday when a driver crossed the middle lane and struck their vehicle head on.

It happened around 7:04 p.m. along Route D south of 164th Terrace. This is also near Holmes Road in Belton, Mo.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol online crash report says a 2006 Dodge was heading north when the driver swerved into the southbound lanes and hit a 2012 Honda head on. Both vehicles rolled over due to the impact. The Dodge landed on its top in the road. The Honda traveled off the right side of the road.

The driver of the Honda, 80-year-old John Henning, and passenger, 78-year-old Nancy Henning, of Village of Loch Lloyd, Mo., died.

Loch Lloyd is just southwest of Grandview, Mo.

The online crash report says John was wearing a seat belt. It is unclear whether Nancy was wearing one.
