The Lincoln County Sheriff's Department says two people were killed in an accident on Route 10 Thursday morning.

Sheriff Jerry Bowman says the driver of a car ran a stop sign and pulled out in front of an oncoming pickup truck. It happened at the intersection of Green Shoals Road and Route 10 near Harts.

Bowman says the two people in the car, Gene Vannatter, 79, of Harts, and Wanda Hall, 41, of Big Ugly, died at the hospital a few hours after the crash. The driver of the pickup truck was not hurt.

The impact of the crash sent the car more than 100 feet, according to Bowman.

The crash is still under investigation.
