FLORISSANT, Mo. (AP) – Two people are dead after an early-morning collision on Interstate 270 in St. Louis County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the crash happened just after 1 a.m. Sunday when a pickup truck rear ended a sport utility vehicle packed with people. The collision sent the SUV rolling off the side of the highway.

The victims were identified as 38-year-old Steven M. Brueggen of Florissant and 37-year-old Michael R. McLemore of O’Fallon. The patrol says they were the only people inside the SUV not wearing seat belts.

Both drivers and four other passengers inside the SUV sustained minor injuries.
