TRACY, Mo. (AP) – A man who police say went on a two-state crime spree died along with a woman in another car after a head-on traffic accident in northwest Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 54-year-old Antwinette E. Holtsclaw of Platte County died Monday when her car was hit by a car driven by 27-year-old Randy L. Hartline of Council Bluffs, Iowa. Hartline died later at a hospital

The accident on Missouri 92 near Tracy ended a crime spree that began in Council Bluffs, when Hartline stole a vehicle and drove to St. Joseph. The patrol says Hartline stole four more vehicles and committed a burglary before troopers began a chase in Platte County.

The patrol says Hartline was trying to pass another vehicle, over-corrected and slammed into Holtsclaw’s car.
