Two dead in Missouri accident in icy conditions
CABOOL (AP) - The Missouri Highway Patrol said two people died in an accident caused by icy conditions in southwest Missouri.
The accident happened Sunday night on a bridge on Highway 63 about five miles north of Cabool in Texas County.
Alex Greuter, 15, and Patricia Wiest, 37, both of Cabool, died at the scene.
The patrol said the car they were riding in went out of control on an ice-covered bridge and slid into the path of a U-Haul truck.
Both drivers survived, but the driver of the victims' car was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
