(ANDREW COUNTY, Mo.) A driver has been arrested after two people were killed in a head-on crash near Savannah.

The accident happened around 7:52 p.m. Sunday on C Highway south of County Road 180 in Andrew County.

Court records show Andrew Schneider, 24, of Rosendale, is charged with DWI in the death of two or more people, involuntary manslaughter, and careless and imprudent driving.

A probable cause statement alleges Schneider had a blood alcohol content level of .166 percent, more than twice the legal limit of .08 percent.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Schneider was behind the wheel of a 2011 Dodge pick-up when it drifted into the oncoming lanes and collided head-on into a 2008 Chevy van.

Two people in the van were killed by the impact and pronounced dead at the scene.

The victims are 69-year-old Danny Donahoo and 68-year-old Diane Donahoo, of Rosendale. 

Schneider is currently in Andrew County Jail. Bond set at $150,000. No date set for court appearance.
