LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- MetroSafe says two people were killed after a car accident in Southwest Jefferson County.

The double fatal accident happened near the intersection of Dixie Highway and Abbotts Beach Road, just south of Shepherdsville Road on Friday.

Jefferson County Deputy Coroner Larry Carroll has identified the victims as 51-year-old Marvin F. Wichers, of Louisville, and 50-year-old Daniel E. Dierickx, of Radcliff. Carroll says that both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

LMPD's Traffic Unit says the driver of one of the cars was traveling south on Dixie Highway, when the vehicle crossed the center dividing line, hitting the second car, which was traveling north on Dixie Highway.

The second vehicle also contained an elderly male passenger, who was taken to University Hospital in serious condition.

Officials say each of the passengers was wearing a seat belt.
