Andrew Co, MO (October 28, 2020) – A man is under arrest following the deaths of two Rosendale residents during a head-on collision that occurred at about 7:50 p.m. on Wednesday, October 28th in Andrew County.
The accident happened around 7:52 p.m. Sunday on C Highway south of County Road 180 in Andrew County.
Initial reports indicate that police responded to the crash site at the intersection of County Road 180 and C Highway when a 2011 Dodge pick-up driven by 24-year-old Andrew Schneider, a resident of Rosendale, strayed into oncoming traffic and crashed head-first into a 2008 Chevy van.
Two of the van’s occupants, Danny and Diane Donahoo, 69 and 68 respectively, were killed during the accident. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
Schneider, who had a blood-alcohol level more than two times the legal limit, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, driving while intoxicated and causing the deaths of two people, and imprudent and careless driving.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victims, Mr. and Mrs. Danny and Diane Donahoo, at this time.
