A man from Chadwick and a woman from Forsyth were killed in a head-on vehicle crash on June 28 in Chadwick.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported Hunter Daugherty, 24, of Chadwick was traveling south on Missouri 125 when he drove his 2019 Honda UTV into the northbound lane in an attempt to overtake the vehicle in front of him.
