FRANKLIN COUNTY, Mo. — Two Hoosiers died over the weekend after police say their car was hit by a wrong-way driver, resulting in a multi-vehicle crash on a rural Missouri interstate.
A Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report indicates that at approximately 9:55 a.m. Sunday, a 2020 Jeep Cherokee driven by 64-year-old Tina E. DeGonia of House Springs, Mo., was spotted traveling the wrong way on Interstate 44 near Franklin County.
DeGonia’s Jeep then struck the front of a 2017 Nissan Rogue that was occupied by 26-year-old Sabrina H. Sutton and 27-year-old Rachel E. Worley — who according to the report were both from Fishers, Indiana.
