MHP confirms second death in Tuesday crash


A second person has died as a result of a Tuesday crash in New Madrid County, according to the Missouri Highway Patrol.

An online crash report identifies the second victim as Carol Quoos, 73, of Dexter. She was rushed to St. Francis Medical Center shortly after the accident, which was on U.S. 60 eastbound, about a half mile west of Morehouse.

The first victim, David Quoos, also 73 and from Dexter, was pronounced dead at the scene Tuesday.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says both victims were in a 2008 Chrysler Aspen that got hit by a 2007 Ford F-150 in which the driver failed to yield. The impact caused the Aspen to run off the right side of the road and overturn.

The driver of the truck was taken to St. Francis Medical Center and was last listed in serious condition.
