NEWTON COUNTY — The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly crash involving three vehicles.

The crash happened around 4:15 Friday afternoon near Holly Road and Missouri Highway 43 north of Seneca.

Authorities say Browne’s vehicle crossed the center line — hitting another vehicle and injuring 76-year-old Ernest Perez.

Browne died at the scene.

Perez suffered minor injuries and Ezell had minor injuries and was taken to a Joplin hospital.
