Teenager from Nixa Facing Charges for Crash that Killed Young Boy

A teenager from Nixa is charged with four felonies in connection with a pursuit and crash that killed a child in July of 2022.

Prosecutors say Zachary Fargo was formally charged on March 1 for:

  • Second-degree murder
  • Two counts of second-degree assault
  • Resisting arrested

Deputies with the Christian County Sheriff’s Office say they attempted a stop on Fargo’s Dodge Charger in Ozark when he began to flea authorities.

The chase continued into Nixa before he crashed into a minivan along Highway 160 near Northview Drive with three occupants inside.

One of those inside the van, 9-year-old Alexander Finley, was killed.

Fargo is being held on a $10,000 bond.
