For the second time in two weeks, investigators say a crash involving a wrong way driver on Route 490 has turned deadly.
The latest crash happened overnight near exit 6 in Gates. Deputies say around 1:30 a.m. Saturday morning, they received a call for a driver traveling westbound on Route 490 in the eastbound lane near Route 531.
Shortly after that call, that vehicle, driven by 37-year-old Thomas Rome, of Kirkwood, hit a SUV near exit 6. The impact of the crash sent both the SUV and the car when into a spin. The SUV was then hit by a third vehicle, traveling the correct direction, behind the SUV.
