Woman, 8-year-old boy dead from Missouri crash
CAPE GIRARDEAU (AP) - The Cape Girardeau County Coroner said a driver and her 8-year-old passenger died from injuries sustained in a weekend car crash.
The Southeast Missourian reports 39-year-old Regina Mize and Justin Murphy died Wednesday. Neither were wearing a seatbelt during the highway collision Sunday afternoon near Cape Girardeau. Authorities haven't disclosed their relationship.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Mize ran off the road and then over-corrected. She collided head-on with a driver who was treated for minor injuries.
Mize was driving two others who were injured in the crash. A man was treated for minor injuries and a woman was admitted with serious injuries. Her condition wasn't immediately available.
