Lincoln County – One driver dies after t-bone collision early Monday afternoon.

On May 13, 2013, Mary D. Killion, age 55 of Moscow Mills, was driving a 2003 Buick Lesabre eastbound on Missouri Route 47. Kreig R. Ramsour, age 43 of Winfield, was operating a 1998 Kenworth tractor trailer also heading eastbound on Missouri Route 47.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Mary D. Killion began to slow down to make a left hand turn onto North Ethlyn Road. The accident occurred when Kreig R. Ramsour steered to the left to avoid striking Killion’s vehicle; Killion turned left into the path of the tractor trailer. Both vehicles traveled off the left side of the roadway. The collision caused Ramsour’s vehicle to overturn.

Mary D. Killion was pronounced dead at the scene by Lincoln County Coroner Lisa Sitler at 1:57 p.m. and was taken to Kemper-Marsh-Millard Funeral Home. Kreig R. Ramsour did not sustain any injuries. Both drivers were reported wearing their seat belts.

Kreig R. Ramsour’s 1998 Kenworth tractor trailer received moderate damage and was towed by Skyline Trucking. Mary D. Killion’s 2003 Buick Lesabre received total damage and was towed by Kinion’s Towing.

This accident was investigated by Trooper R. A. Bronson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop C and was assisted by Trooper J. R. Henry, Sergeant B. D. Moore, and Chief Visionary Officer R. L. Fry.
