(GRUNDY COUNTY, Mo.) A Trenton, Missouri woman was killed and three others were injured in a three vehicle crash in Grundy County Thursday morning.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, 70-year-old Kenneth Talley was driving eastbound on MO 6, four miles east of Jamesport, as 34-year-old Barbara Wagler and 34-year-old Devin Burkhiser were both traveling westbound. The crash occurred as Talley's vehicle began sliding, side swiped Wagler's vehicle and crossed the center line. Burkhiser attempted to avoid Talley, but was struck head-on.
