LINCOLN COUNTY • Two Winfield women have died after a two-vehicle crash in Lincoln County on Thursday afternoon.

Judy D. Compton, 67, was pronounced dead Thursday evening, the Missouri Highway Patrol reported. The other driver, Daphne M. Runge, 42, of Winfield, died at 9 a.m. Friday.

The patrol, in an updated accident report, said the 2006 Pontiac driven by Compton crossed the centerline on Highway 47 at Oak Bend Drive at about 3:30 p.m. and struck the 1999 BMW convertible driven by Runge head-on. Compton was airlifted to Lincoln County Medical Center. Runge was airlifted to Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur. Neither woman wore a seat belt, the patrol said.

A Runge Family Children's fund has been set up to receive donations at the Bank of Old Monroe.
