A wrong-way accident that occurred along I-435 claimed the lives of two individuals early yesterday morning. According to authorities, the accident took place at around 8:30 a.m. Monday when an SUV that was headed south in the northbound lanes hit another car at a high speed. The SUV hit the car head on and killed its forty-four year old driver and her eleven-year old daughter. The driver had just rounded a turn and had no reaction time before she was struck head on by the SUV. The state of the wrong-way driver is unknown and the accident itself is under investigation. Prayers go out to the family and friends of the two females that lost their lives because of the negligent driving of another.
