By Heartland News

SCOTT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - One person is dead after a crash on Interstate 55 at mile marker 75.

Missouri State Highway Patrol troopers say two men were pushing a 1994 Caddilac without any lights on in the southbound lanes of I-55.

A semi truck came up on the stalled car and swerved to miss it, but hit it in the rear shortly before 8 p.m. Monday.

Both of the men pushing the car were thrown by the impact.

It killed 62-year-old Morris Maltzman from the St. Louis area.

The other man, from Pennsylvania, received moderate injuries and was taken to a local hospital. 

The truck driver from Morris, Illinois was not seriously hurt, but was also taken to a nearby hospital.
