A Springfield man is dead after an accident Monday afternoon on Interstate 55 just south of Glenarm.
The 44-year-old man has not been identified pending notification of next of kin. He was driving southbound on 55 at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his vehicle, a 2001 Nissan. His vehicle left the roadway, went across the median and struck the bridge on the I-55 northbound side. The car then traveled into the northbound lane of traffic and struck a 2017 GMC pickup truck that was traveling northbound.
The 44-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene. The conditions of those in the pickup truck, a 53-year-old male and a 55-year-old female both of Kennett, Missouri, are not known at this time.
