(CALDWELL COUNTY, Mo.) A man was killed in a traffic accident Tuesday afternoon after a tractor trailer lost the dual tires off the number three axle and hit the man's vehicle head-on.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the accident occurred as 39-year-old Stanley Parker, of Oak Ridge, Missouri, was driving eastbound on U.S. 36 when the tractor trailer lost the dual tires. The tires traveled across the median onto the westbound lane and struck a vehicle driven by 72-year-old Jerry Graham, of Hamilton, Missouri. Graham's vehicle then traveled off the north side of U.S. 36 and down an embankment.

Graham was taken to Cameron Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Parker was not injured. Both drivers were wearing seat belts.

More hot and humid weather on the way for today with highs back in the upper 90s with some areas reaching triple digits. Use caution when spending time outside because heat index values will once again be in the triple digits for many. A cold front will start to approach our area tonight and stall to our north giving us a few chances for showers and thunderstorms overnight, however this activity will not be widespread. Temperatures will still be above average this weekend with highs in the 90s. A few lingering rain chances will continue this weekend, but much of the weekend will be dry. The cold front will move through the area early next week giving us some much cooler temperatures. High will be back down in the upper 70s and lower 80s to start off next week.
