Trial Date Set for Woman Accused of Killing Drury University Student

A woman from Ozark will appear in court soon on charges stemming from a crash that killed a Drury University student.

Investigators say 55-year-old Marjorie Dewitt was attempting to pass a FedEx truck in a no-passing zone on State Highway 125, driving directly into the path of Mercedes Luna in May of 2021.

Luna swerved to avoid Dewitt’s SUV and crashed into the FedEx truck. She was killed in the crash. Dewitt then fled the scene.

Officers say security camera footage corroborated witness statements and their own investigation.

Dewitt is charged with involuntary manslaughter, tampering with physical evidence and leaving the scene of an accident. She will be due in court on April 22 of next year.
