Brenda Fletcher, a 62-year-old Kansas woman, was southbound on the highway when she crossed left of center. Her Mazda Tribute struck a pickup truck that was northbound, according to a collision report.

Clinton resident Plez Malone Jr. was driving the pickup. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene, the report states.
