Two men are dead after a two-car accident on US 60 just west of Lawrence 2210.
According to a release from the Aurora Police Department, the accident happened Wednesday night around 10:30.
The accident, the department says, occurred when a man driving west on US 60 struck a guardrail before a railroad bridge, drove back into the road, and into the eastbound lanes on the bridge. That man hit another vehicle.
The first driver, a 92-year-old man Monett, was driving a pickup truck. The driver he hit, a 22-year-old man from Crane, was driving a mid-size sedan.
According to Aurora Police, both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities say neither vehicle had passengers in them.
The names of the victims were not released.
