MARSHALL — The Missouri State Highway Patrol said two Saline County residents have been killed in a head-on collision in a rural part of the county.

The Marshall Democrat-News reported that 60-year-old Sherry Hess of Slater and 20-year-old Jeremy Rader died after the crash shortly before 8 a.m. Monday on Missouri 240, about a mile south of Route P.

The Highway Patrol said Hess was westbound in a 2004 Jeep when she crossed the center line and collided with a 1993 Jeep driven by Rader.

Hess was pronounced dead at the scene, while Rader died at an area hospital about an hour after the crash.

Investigators said both drivers were wearing seat belts.
