Deadly Crash

KINGSVILLE, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri mother and her young daughter are dead after a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 50 near Kingsville in Johnson County, Missouri.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/2bcz1hn ) reports the victims were 47-year-old Alicia McGinnis and 8-year-old Kacee McGinnis of Blairstown. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident happened around 7:30 a.m. Monday as Alicia McGinnis was driving her daughter to school.

Investigators say the victims were northbound at a crossover when their vehicle traveled into the path of a westbound SUV.

The impact of the crash pushed both vehicles off the north side of the highway.

The two victims died at the scene, while two women in the SUV sustained minor injuries and were treated at a nearby hospital.
