One dead following two-vehicle crash on Highway 63
BOONE COUNTY - A 21-year-old woman is dead after a two-vehicle crash on US 63 and Highway 124 East on Friday morning.
According to Assistant Chief Gale Blomenkamp with the Boone County Fire Protection District, the woman was driving south on Highway 63 when she crossed the median and onto the northbound lanes. Her vehicle was then hit on the side by a second vehicle.
The woman died at the scene; two people in the second vehicle were taken to University Hospital with moderate injuries.
At one point both northbound lanes of Highway 63 were closed; the passing lane has since opened, but the driving lane will stay closed until the Missouri State Highway Patrol finishes its investigation.
No names have been released pending notification of family members and next of kin.
