Jennifer Dumas dies from accident-inflicted injuries

A woman involved in a crash earlier this month has passed away.

Officers with the Joplin Police Department say 28 year old Jennifer Dumas died from her injuries just after two this morning. The case has now been turned over to the newton county prosecutor.

Police say on February 7th, Dumas was driving southbound on Highway 43 when she crossed the centerline, hitting another driver head on. They say before the crash, Dumas was involved in a disturbance at Rapid Roberts Truck Stop, where she and a third driver were driving carelessly in the parking lot. Authorities say things then lead to Highway 43, where the crash occurred.
