The identities of the two people killed when their motor home crashed into a mobile home in Boone County Tuesday afternoon have been released. The Arkansas State Police say the victims are 72-year-old Fred Dugger and 70-year-old Diane Dugger of Hutchinson, Kan.

The victims were positively identified through dental records after their bodies were sent to the Arkansas State Crime Lab

A Mountain Home man, 51-year-old Trevor McGehee, was injured in the three-vehicle accident.

Arkansas State Police say a car struck McGehee's vehicle, causing it to cross the centerline of U.S. Highway 62 and collide with a motor home. The motor home struck by McGehee's car exited the roadway and struck a mobile home.

The Harrison Daily Times reports ASP Trooper Jason Hutcheson says McGehee was eastbound on Highway 62, stopped waiting for a vehicle in front of him to make a left turn. The driver of the car striking the Mountain Home man's vehicle from behind was an unidentified minor. The impact forced McGehee's vehicle into the path of the westbound motor home.

The motor home left the roadway, traveling about 100 feet before it struck a mobile home and burst into flames. Hutcheson says the two occupants of the motor home were unable to escape and were killed.

McGehee was airlifted to Cox Medical Center South in Springfield.

The minor driver and a minor passenger in the vehicle striking McGehee's were not injured.
