OSAGE BEACH - The Osage Beach Police Department said a Gravois Mills man died Thursday after an accident on westbound Highway 54 in which a passing car hit him as he tried to cross the highway.
Officers said witnesses reported 44-year-old Timothy Miesner ran out of gas at the east end of the Grand Glaize Bridge. They said he was returning to his vehicle with a gas can from a nearby business when he was hit by a 17-year-old driver just past the Osage Beach Parkway on-ramp.
Ambulances transported Miesner to Lake Regional Hospital where he died from his injuries.
The driver, a Roach resident, will not be charged.
