ROGERSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - Two southwest Missouri men are dead after their SUV tried to cross a highway and was broadsided by an oncoming vehicle.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports 51-year-old David Palmer of Rogersville was driving a Chevrolet Blazer at 1:25 p.m. Friday in Webster County when he attempted to cross U.S. 60 at the intersection with Peck Hollow Road.

Palmer’s vehicle was struck in the side by a pickup truck driven by 26-year-old Chad Barlow of Fordland.

The patrol says Palmer was pronounced dead at 2:08 p.m. and his passenger, 44-year-old Michael Karnes of Rogersville, was pronounced dead half an hour later.

Barlow was taken to a Springfield hospital to be treated for moderate injuries.
