Three Dead in Crashes on Icy Roads in Heartland
By: Heartland News & AP
Around 1:50 p.m. Monday, 51-year-old Willie Love of Cairo, Ill., was killed when his vehicle slid into the path of a tractor-trailer on an icy stretch of U.S. 60 in New Madrid County. The crash also injured 2 of Love's passengers.
Less than ten minutes later in Butler County, 40-year-old Marcelaine Falk of Doniphan was killed when she lost control of her vehicle on an icy patch of U.S. 67 and collided with an oncoming vehicle.
Her 18-year-old passenger and three occupants of the other vehicle were injured in the wreck.
It wasn't immediately clear if the weather was to blame for another fatal wreck last night that claimed the life of a 19-year-old. The driver died after he ran off the road in Wayne County.
