Two Brothers Killed in Collision

Two brothers from Van Buren County were killed when their cars collided head-on.

It happened near Paw Paw yesterday afternoon when police say 33-year-old James West lost control of his car on a snow-covered road.

It crossed the center line and hit a car driven by 24-year-old Jessie West.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene and investigators say neither man was wearing a seatbelt.

They say the brothers lived together in Decatur and the accident appears to be a coincidence.
