Moberly Man Killed After Striking Dump Truck in Boone County
A Moberly man was killed Monday afternoon in a two-vehicle accident that occurred in Boone County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that a southbound 2005 GMC Sierra, driven by 59-year-old Mark A. Swindell of Moberly, was on US 63 at Breedlove Road just after 4 p.m., when a westbound 2012 Freightliner dump truck, driven by 25-year-old Brandon L. Wainman of Centralia, crossed US 63 at Breedlove, pulling into the path of the GMC. The GMC collided with the dump truck, then traveled off the right side of the roadway, down an embankment and struck a tree.
Swindell was pronounced dead at the scene by Boone County Forensic Investigator Stacey Huck at 4:20 p.m. The body was taken to University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia.
The GMC was totaled.
Wainman was reportedly uninjured. Both drivers were wearing their seat belt at the time of the crash.
A total of seven Troopers were on scene.
