Jessica Brazil of Sunrise Beach is Tragically Killed in a Head On Car Crash.



Camdenton, Missouri- Two women are dead and three children are in serious condition after a head-on car crash on Highway 5, Thursday morning.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol report, 32-year-old Amber Metcalf, of Versailles, Mo. and 33-year-old Jessica Brazil, of Camdenton, Mo., were killed in the head-on collision.

The report states pretty clearly that Metcalf’s 2006 Chrysler Pacifica was headed north on Highway 5 when it crossed over the center line and crashed into the 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan driven by Jessica Brazil of Sunrise Beach. Jessica is married to Eddie Brazil of Sunrise Beach.

According to the report, the crash occurred on the “land-bridge” portion of the Niangua Bridge on Highway 5, in Greenview.

The crash killed both drivers and seriously injured three children who were in Jessica Brazil’s minivan. Seriously injured were four-year-old Jordan Brazil, two-year-old Malachi Brazil, and six-year-old Jozlan Pawelczaklister. Both of the Brazil children were transported by Air Ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Springfield.

Jozlan Pawelczaklister was taken by EMS to Lake Regional and then onto Mercy in Springfield.

The MSHP has confirmed the immediate family members of the deceased had been notified.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Eddie Brazil and the entire Brazil family, as well as the family of Amber Metcalf.
