This weekend, bad road conditions were the cause of a Missouri car accident near Rock Port. A Columbia woman lost control of her vehicle on a slick, snow-covered roadway, causing her to collide with oncoming traffic in northwest Missouri.

Karen E. Berry, 44, of Columbia was traveling northbound on Interstate 29 when she lost control of her vehicle, slid into the southbound lane, and collided with a car in the oncoming traffic. Courtney K. Middleton, 18, of Merriam, Kansas was the driver of the hit car. Middleton’s 2000 Mercury Cougar spun off of the west side of the interstate. Berry’s 2004 Kia Sorento came to rest in between the southbound lanes.
