Staff Report
When the Webster County Grand Jury met earlier this month, it passed down an indictment on Christopher S. Duncan, 43 of Dixon.

Duncan was charged in relation to a July 19 accident that resulted in the deaths of two motorist.

The KSP accident report stated that Duncan was operating a 1996 Ford Ranger westbound in the eastbound lane of travel on Highway 132 when he met a 2002 Yamaha motorcycle in a curve.  The pickup truck struck the motorcycle head-on, ejecting the operator, Johnathan G.

Both occupants of the motorcycle were pronounced dead at the scene by the Webster County Coroner.  Neither victim was wearing a helmet.

The Grand Jury passed down indictments on one count of Operating a Motor Vehicle Under the Influence and two counts of murder.
