DIXON, Mo. (AP) - Authorities have identified two of the six people who drowned in Missouri's Pulaski County.

The sheriff's office said in a news release that the victims were 53-year-old Ron Gray and 50-year-old Sandra Tilley, both from Dixon. They died Saturday night when their vehicle was swept away by floodwaters.

A witness called to report what had happened less than a minute after authorities were alerted that another vehicle had been swept off a highway about 10 miles away. Four international soldiers who were studying at Fort Leonard Wood died in the other vehicle. Their names and where they were from weren't immediately released.
