Mo. Father, Young Daughter Die in Traffic Accident
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. - A St. Joseph man and his 5-year-old daughter died in a collision with a tractor-trailer truck.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident Tuesday east of St. Joseph killed 26-year-old Jason Musser and his daughter, Charlene.
The patrol says the accident happened on U.S. 36 when Musser was following a semi that was driving slowly because of mechanical problems. The patrol says Musser swerved into the passing lane, lost control of his car and skidded into the rear of the tractor-trailer.
