COLUMBIA — A woman died in a two-vehicle accident Friday morning on Route B and Mount Zion Church Road.
The accident is still under investigation, but Boone County Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Gale Blomenkamp said it looked as if a car and a van collided at 7:15 a.m. The car involved was described as a maroon Honda Accord. A description of the van was not available.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and a female passenger in the car was admitted to University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Blomenkamp said.
The female driver of the van initially refused treatment at the scene but consented to being admitted into University Hospital, Blomenkamp said.
Officials are withholding the name of the deceased pending notification of her family.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol is conducting the investigation, Blomenkamp said.
