CLINTON — Three people are dead after a three-car crash in western Missouri just north of Clinton in Henry County.

A 2007 Mazda driven by 19-year-old Jennifer Reeder of Springfield was northbound on Missouri 13 when it crossed the center line, side-swiped one car and ran head-on into a second one, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Reeder's car went off the road, rolled down an embankment and came to rest on the driver's side.

Reeder and her passenger, 20-year-old Erin Hook of St. Joseph, were killed in the collision, as was 49-year-old Paul Stankus of Clinton, who was driving the car that was hit head-on.

All three were pronounced dead at the scene.
