A three-vehicle accident in Lafayette County led to the death of one pedestrian, and serious injuries for another, on June 19.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 55-year-old Jeffery Sanders of Mayview was killed after being caught underneath of a 1978 Ford, which was one of two vehicles that were struck from behind by a 2004 Ford, driven by 59-year-old Jerry W. Shier of Higginsville, while stopped in the roadway on Route E.

Another pedestrian, 33-year-old Jacob Hayward of Mayview, was also struck and seriously injured in the accident. He was taken by Life Flight to Research Medical Center for treatment.
