Lincoln County, MO ( KSDK ) - - A woman told police she was trying to avoid striking a car in her driving lane Saturday night, just before she lost control and collided head-on with a third vehicle.
The collision happened about 6 p.m. on Route H at Geeding Road in Lincoln County.
Killed in the crash was 70 year old Thomas G. Dames of Troy. His passenger, 65 year old Mary A. Dames, was treated for injuries at St. Joseph's Hospital West.
A Missouri Highway Patrol report says 51 year old Tamra L. Williams of Lake St. Louis was driving north on the highway and that she tried to avoid hitting an "unknown vehicle." The resulting crash sent the Dames' vehicle into the ditch, where it flipped over.
Williams was treated for minor injuries.
All three people were wearing seatbelts.
