Betty Dyer killed, 4 others injured, in Lafayette County crash

On Thursday, August 16, four Missouri residents were injured, and one–68-year old Betty Dyer, was killed in a multi-car accident on US-24, east of Old Sante Fe Trail, in Lafayette County.

The accident began at approximately 1:55 PM, when James E. Frasier, a resident of Waverly, MO, accidentally crossed over the center line forcing the vehicle in which Ms. Dyer and the others were travelling in to swerve so as to avoid a collision. The driver of this vehicle, Jessica Williams, then lost control of the car which slammed into a nearby road sign before flipping onto it’s side.

Layton Cooper, Charles Karras, and Ms. Williams, the driver, all suffered moderate injury, and all had to be transported via EMS to area hospitals for further medical treatment. Mr. Frazier also suffered serious injury. Ms. Dyer, who was not wearing a safety belt at the time of the incident, was declared deceased at the scene by the Lafayette County Coroner’s office.

It is always unfortunate when a traffic accident ends in the loss of a life. We at the law offices of Kevin J. Roach extend our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the parties involved.
