STE. GENEVIEVE COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - A Festus, Missouri woman was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 55 in Ste. Genevieve County on Wednesday, July 18.
The crash happened around 7:06 p.m. in the southbound lanes of I-55 at the 162.8 mile marker.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, 22-year-old Bradley R. Hovis, of Festus, for an unknown reason, drove his Ford F150 of the left side of the road and over-corrected.
This caused the truck to travel off the right side of the road, hit a rock bluff and then flip.
Hovis' passenger, 21-year-old Bethany C. Day, of Festus, was killed in the crash.
An ambulance crew took Hovis a St. Louis hospital with minor injuries.
Troopers report that Hovis and Day were not wearing seat belts and the crash totaled the pick-up truck.
