Two people are dead after a head-on collision
Tuesday afternoon in Jo Davies County.
Jo Davies County authorities say 71-year-old
Bob Haug of Elizabeth and 80-year-old
Richard Kirstein of Galena died at Midwest

taken there after the accident, for treatment of
injuries they sustained in the crash.
Also injured in the crash was 82-year-old
Clyde Laughlin of Galena. He was a passenger
Kirstein’s vehicle. Laughlin was also treated

Haug’s vehicle crossed the center line and
collided head-on with Kirstein’s.
The crash remains under investigation.
