The drivers of two vehicles were killed in the collision that occurred when the driver of one of the vehicles drove the wrong way on a divided highway where U.S. 20 and U.S. 6 run together, the patrol said.

Killed were Charles E. Starks, 61, of Fremont and Mrs. Hunt, 57, also of Fremont, troopers said.

The boy was a passenger in Ms. Hunt’s pickup truck, according to the patrol. 

Starks was driving east in the westbound lanes of U.S. 20/​U.S. 6 in Sandusky Township about 7:20 p.m. when he collided with Ms. Hunt’s westbound truck, the patrol said.

Starks was not wearing a seat belt. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene.

The westbound lanes of the highway were closed to traffic for about three hours.
