Two people from Blockton were killed and a third person was injured in a head-on crash Monday evening in southern Iowa’s Ringgold County.

The Iowa State Patrol says 56-year-old Patrcia Ann Davis and a passenger in her car, 71-year-old Howard Jay Davis, died when their Ford escort collided at the crest of a hill with a Chevy Blazer driven by 33-year-old Jonathan Jay Chumbley, of Mount Ayr. None of the crash victims were wearing their seatbelts.

The accident happened on 270th Street in the southern part of the county at around 5:35 PM Monday.
