On Wednesday, August 15, five Missouri residents were injured, and two–24-year old Bryce Ash and 23-year old Kalena Freitas, were killed in a multi-car accident on Missouri State Highway 63, just north of Cabool, in Texas County.
The accident began at approximately 12:43 PM, when the 2010 Dodge Avenger driven by Mr. Ash skidded across the center line and into oncoming traffic where it struck a 2017 Ford Flex occupied by Marlyn and Charles Smith, of Eunice.
Mr. Ash was declared deceased at the scene by the Texas county coroner’s office, and Ms. Freitas was declared dead later by doctors at Texas County Memorial Hospital. Mr. Ash’s 3-year old son, Brylon Ash, was also in the vehicle at the time of the accident. Brylon suffered only minor physical injury in the incident.
Ms. Smith suffered serious injury and had to be transported via EMS to Texas County Memorial Hospital for life saving medical intervention. Mr. Smith also suffered moderate injury and had to be transported to hospital for further observation.
