An accident in Morgan County just before 11 p.m. on June 20 killed a 35-year-old woman from Gravois Mills.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Jessi M. Wells was driving a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee that left the roadway and struck a tree on Bass Point Rd., east of Woodcrest Ave. Wells transported to Lake Regional Hospital, where she was pronounced dead just before midnight.

Wells was not wearing a safety device at the time of the accident, according to an online crash report. The vehicle was totaled and was towed from the scene.

This accident is the second fatal accident in the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Troop F region for the month of June, and the 24th fatality for the region in 2018.
