New Haven, MO (KSDK) - A two car, head-on collision along Highway 100 west of New Haven Tuesday afternoon has killed both drivers involved.

Missouri Highway Patrol troopers tell NewsChannel-5 just after 4:30 p.m. yesterday, an eastbound car driven by 21 year old Austin Vanbooven of Rhineland crossed the centerline just west of Grant School Road in Franklin County and slammed into an oncoming westbound car, driven by Amanda Witthaus, 27 of Hermann.

Both Witthaus and Vanbooven were both pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.  Authorities say Witthaus was wearing her seat belt, Vanbooven was not.
