Authorities have released the names of two people killed in a head-on collision on State Highway 87/48 in the Town of Anderson last week.

The Burnett County Sheriff’s Office said the crash, reported at 5:00 p.m. May 16, occurred near Bucklund Road south of Grantsburg.

Both drivers, Allan G. Hill, 73, Grantsburg, and Jody J. Quimby, 43, Grantsburg, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash report states Hill’s vehicle was negotiating the curve when he failed to control his vehicle, failed to yield to right-of-way, and other contributing action.
