IMPERIAL, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Highway Patrol says two drivers were killed in a head-on crash when one of them drove north in the southbound lanes of a highway south of St. Louis.

The crash happened shortly after noon Tuesday on Missouri 21 in Jefferson County.

Investigators said 82-year-old Mary E. Burke, of St. Louis, mistakenly entered the southbound lanes. Her car eventually collided with a pickup truck driven by 25-year-old James R. Sybert, of De Soto. Burke was pronounced dead at the scene, and Sybert at a hospital.

Police said Burke may have driven as much as four miles in the wrong direction.
