Fatal crash investigation in Newton County


The Missouri State Highway Patrol says around 7:30 Tuesday evening. Two vehicles collided head-on near the intersection of Highway 86 and Monark Drive, East of Neosho.

A female, 42, driving a 4-door Sedan was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the other vehicle was male and was taken to a local hospital to be checked out, but is expected to be okay. The names of the drivers are not being released at this time.

“We will make notification for the deceased party as they continue to get the vehicles cleared off the roadway and we can make sure the scene is secure and get the roadway opened back up once everything has been moved out,” says Trooper Glass with the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Authorities add the victim was not wearing a seatbelt.
