According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, the accident happened just before 4:30 a.m. about five miles north of Oregon, Missouri.

The report said Faudoa-Morales first traveled off the west side of the southbound lanes before returning to the roadway. The vehicle then veered off the east side of the roadway into the median. 

Faudoa-Morales overturned onto the northbound lanes of I-29 and was ejected through the driver's window. 

The Highway Patrol said Faudoa-Morales was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities said he was not wearing a safety belt at the time of the accident.

Tomorrow we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will start to move away from the area on Saturday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s and watch for our next chance for rain on Sunday.
