An elderly Exira couple has died in a car crash.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 79-year-old Doris Akers and her husband, 82-year-old Harold Akers, died after the car they were in collided with another car Friday afternoon on Highway 44 in western Iowa.

The Iowa State Patrol says the Akers' car crossed the center line about four miles east of Kimballton, hitting another car head-on.

The 42-year-old driver of the other car suffered minor injuries.

The patrol says all involved were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
