Alcohol was found in the vehicle that crossed over the center line in a collision near Derby that killed both drivers and hospitalized two passengers, officials said.

Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to the 4200 block of East 63rd Street South at around 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Lt. Tim Myers said in a release. They found a gray 1993 Honda and a maroon 2011 Chrysler 200 that had collided.

The driver of the Honda, a 29-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene, Myers said. He was identified as Bryan P. Langille. A 32-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the Honda, was taken to Wesley Medical Center in critical condition.

The 53-year-old woman driving the Chrysler was pronounced dead at the scene, Myers said. She was identified as Kelley Lynn Houlton. Her passenger, a 71-year-old woman, was taken to Wesley Medical Center.

A preliminary investigation indicates the westbound Honda crossed over the center line and crashed into the eastbound Chrysler, Myers said. Alcohol was found in the Honda.
