A three-vehicle collision resulted in one fatality Tuesday morning at Old Quarry Rd and 152nd Street in Excelsior.
According to Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe, as a pickup driven by Anthony Lewawdowski of Kearney traveled Northbound on Old Quarry Road, a passenger vehicle driven by Noe Hale of Rayville attempted to pass the pickup at a hill crest. At the top of the hill, the passenger vehicle hit a southbound traveling Dually pickup driven by Marlin Morris of Lawson head-on.
According to the MSHP crash report, the collision resulted in Hale's vehicle being pushed sideways in the northbound lane, into the path of the vehicle driven by Lewawdowski.
Morris's vehicle then struck the side of Lewawdowski's, which in turn stuck the vehicle driven by Hale in the side.
Lowe said the collision resulted in the Hale's death. Excelsior Springs Ambulance transported Morris to Liberty Hospital with minor injuries.
