BOONE COUNTY - Two drivers collided head-on just north of Rocheport Friday on U.S. Route 40 and both were transported to hospitals with injuries.
The accident closed U.S. Route 40 in both directions for nearly two hours. Both drivers involved were men. They were transported to University Hospital, one by ambulance and one by helicopter. Their injuries were described as significant to serious.
A crash witness told KOMU 8 News it appeared one car was trying to pass illegally, which may have caused the wreck.
