Three people are dead after three separate crashes in southeast Missouri Tuesday
A woman was hit and killed by a truck while she was walking along a rural road just south of Miner Tuesday night. Troopers say the truck was passing a slow moving vehicle when it struck 31-year-old Leigh Brashear of Sikeston.
A Sikeston man was killed in a crash involving a semi truck also Tuesday night. Troopers say the semi was attempting to pass a pick up truck on Highway 61 south of Sikeston when the pick up attempted to make a left hand turn. The crash killed the driver of the pick up, 66-year-old Paul Glaus. A passenger in Glaus's truck was in serious condition Wednesday morning at a Cape Girardeau hospital. The driver of the tractor trailer received minor injuries.
