A man from Springfield was killed in a car accident in Region 8 last week.
The accident occurred on U.S. Highway 63 as the man was driving and his
car went off of the right side of the road for unknown reasons. The car
then flipped over and rolled into a group of trees before hitting a fence
and coming to a stop.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency crews after he was
ejected from the car during the accident. The passenger in the vehicle
was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Car accidents can cause serious injury to all people inside the vehicle, our thoughts
are with the friends and family of the victim.
