DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say the driver of a car involved in a deadly collision in Greene County last weekend was not licensed to drive. The Iowa State Patrol says 42-year-old David Muir, of Rippey, was suspended from driving and should not have been behind the wheel. Troopers say Muir’s car collided with an oncoming pickup truck near Rippey on Sunday afternoon. Muir, a passenger, Andrew Jackson, of Orient, and the driver of the pickup, Dwight Snowgren, of Jamaica, were killed. The patrol determined Muir was traveling at 127 mph just seconds before the crash. Investigators say Muir’s car lost some speed before the collision and was traveling at about 85 mph at the time of impact.
