DONNELLSON, Iowa — Authorities say a collision killed two people in southeast Iowa's Lee County.

The Iowa State Patrol says the collision occurred around 1:15 a.m. Sunday on Iowa Highway 2, about 4 miles west of Donnellson. Troopers say Robert Boyd, 28, of Kahoka, Mo., was headed west when he failed to negotiate a curve, overcorrected and crossed the center line. His vehicle struck a sport utility vehicle being driven by Laverne Faulkner, 63.

The patrol says Faulkner and his passenger, Michael Faulkner, 39, were killed. They lived in Farmington.

Boyd was taken to the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics in Iowa City for treatment.
