According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the crash happened just after 2:30 p.m. A 2008 Chevrolet Corvette was driving westbound on state highway 190 eight miles west of Chillicothe when it crested a hill at a high rate of speed. The vehicle then became airborne and travelled off the north side of the road. The vehicle then continued down a ditch, striking an embankment and becoming airborne once more.

As a result of the crash, 80-year old Edward Gault was killed. A 15-year old boy sustained serious injuries and has been life-flighted to Truman Medical Center.

Both people in the vehicle were wearing safety devices.

Sunday will start to warm back up into the middle 50s and we should see more sunshine across the area. Much colder air is in the forecast for next week with highs only in the upper 20's and lower 30's.
