November 10 the LCSO assisted the Missouri State Highway Patrol and County Coroner’s office with a single vehicle crash which resulted in 1 fatality. The driver was apparently westbound on Route C at a high rate of speed then went off the roadway and struck a utility pole before going airborne across the creek. Vehicle landed roof first on the opposite creek bank and the car then slid into the creek. The lone occupant, Samuel P. Vanhorn, 26, Utica was pronounced dead at the scene.
Thoughts and prayers remain with the family and friends.
Sheriff Steve Cox
