The Missouri State Highway Patrol named the woman killed in a three-vehicle accident Monday morning.
MSHP investigators say that 36-year-old Jessica Landis of Everton died at the scene.
Landis rear-ended a trailer on a truck that had stopped to make a left turn. The impact of the collision sent Landis’s vehicle into the path of another vehicle.
Landis was wearing her seat belt. Her passenger was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Mike Landis, anchor for KOLR-10, posted on social media that the victim was his sister.
“Life is short,” Landis wrote. “Make sure to hug your loved ones. It has been a hard 24 hours since my sister passed away in a car accident. Our family certainly appreciates all the thoughts, prayers, and support from everyone.”
