The accident happened on Wednesday just before 4:00 p.m. on I-70 at mile marker 39 in Bond County.

Both Dennis and her passenger Roger Hamilton, 44, were killed in the crash. Police say they were not wearing seat belts.
Westbound I-70 in that area was closed for nearly six hours while accident reconstruction crews worked to investigate the scene.
