A 22-year-old Green Ridge man was killed and a 21-year-old La Monte woman was seriously injured in an April 12 accident on Highway B in Pettis County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a westbound 1999 Dodge began to skid, left the roadway and struck a tree around 10:50 p.m. The driver, Timothy W. Callahan, was pronounced dead just before midnight at Bothwell Regional Health Center. A passenger, Lindsey R. Breads, was taken by Life Flight to University Hospital in Columbia.

An online accident report indicates that neither Callahan nor Breads were wearing safety devices. The Dodge was totaled in the accident and was towed from the scene.
