A driver involved in a fiery head-on crash in Cass County that killed two people Tuesday night was arrested on suspicion of being intoxicated and involuntary manslaughter.
John H. Henning, 80, and Nancy L. Henning, 78, of the Village of Loch Lloyd were killed in the crash, according to a preliminary crash report from the Missouri Highway Patrol.
A 31-year-old male driver from Belton also was injured in the crash and was taken to a hospital. The Highway Patrol arrested him on suspicion of felony driving while intoxicated with two counts of involuntary manslaughter, according to an arrest report.
He was released to receive medical treatment. Formal charges are pending.
The crash occurred shortly after 7 p.m. on Holmes Road just south of 164th Terrace near the Village of Loch Lloyd.
The Hennings were headed south in a 2012 Honda SUV when a northbound 2006 Dodge pickup truck swerved into oncoming traffic and collided head-on.
The pickup rolled onto its top and came to rest in the roadway. The Hennings' SUV rolled and traveled off the right side of the road. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
