DRESDEN (AP) – The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department was conducting an accident reconstruction Wednesday following a head-on collision that killed two people and injured two others.

The accident happened Tuesday evening when a Volkswagen Jetta crossed the center line and collided with a pickup truck that was hauling a trailer containing appliances and furniture, investigators said.

Killed were the pickup driver, Robert Warren, 59, and one of the car’s occupants, Kellie L. Hart, 19, of Phippsburg, investigators said. Two other occupants of the Volkswagen were seriously injured.

Lt. Rand Maker said the sheriff’s department is working with the district attorney to determine contributing factors that led to the accident.

Investigators felt confident they would be able to identify which of the three occupants was driving the Volkswagen. Further interviews and tests were expected before a determination.
