(HARRISON COUNTY, Mo.) An 18-year-old was killed when he crashed his vehicle on icy roads near Bethany.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Tucker Depew, of Blackduck, MN, was driving north on I-35 when he lost control on the ice covered highway. His Ford Explorer went off the road, down an embankment and overturned several times. Depew was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.

After some clouds this morning we finally started to see some sunshine across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri today. The next disturbance is heading our way from the southwest and should make it into the area late tonight tonight and tomorrow.
