Three people died in a pair of auto crashes this weekend on Missouri roads.
The Missouri Highway Patrol said a 2000 Dodge Ram pickup driven by 17-year-old Levi R. Clark of Crocker crossed the center line of Missouri 133 near Richland on Saturday afternoon, hitting a 2008 Dodge van head-on.
The crash killed Clark, who was not wearing a seat belt, and the driver of the van, 63-year-old Linda M. Wall of Richland. It also injured Wall’s passenger, 11-year-old Katie E. Wall.
The patrol said a second accident early Sunday morning killed 18-year-old Bailey R. Mitchell of Marionville when Mitchell lost control on a Lawrence County road, left the road and struck a tree. Authorities said she was not wearing a seat belt.
