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.
In Wayne County, a one vehicle crash killed a Hiram man.  Troopers say 54-year-old Roy Nunnery was driving on Route C Tuesday night when his vehicle ran off the road, overturned and struck a tree.  The vehicle then burst into flames.  The Wayne County coroner pronounced Nunnery dead at the scene.
